    Description

    George Washington: "Long Live the President" Liverpool Jug. 8" tall pitcher with hand-painted highlights. One side depicts Washington captioned "Long Live the President of the United States". The portrait is flanked by goddesses, one of whom, Lady Liberty, exclaims "My Favorite Son". An eagle with fifteen stars appears below the spout. A sailing ship flying a fifteen star American flag appears on the backside. Some light wear to the transfers. Two repaired chips on the base and one on the spout. The colors are bright as is the body of the jug. Issued during Washington's presidency, this makes a fine "go-with" for a display of GW inaugural buttons.
