    John Adams: Rare and Sought-after Liverpool Creamware Pitcher as President. Liverpool pitchers and other forms were produced for our first four presidents but examples picturing John Adams are by far the rarest. To provide some perspective, the renowned U.I. "Chick" Harris Collection included only a single example, and Harris collected for nearly five decades before he was able to obtain that single one.

    A fine, large portrait of Adams is surmounted by a small Federal eagle, with the legend "John Adams President of the United States" below. ON the opposite side is an elaborate Masonic image, and under the pouring spout is "Success to America" surrounded by a wreath. Condition is excellent, with very bold transfers, and no apparent indications of repair or restoration. For strictest accuracy we note a trivial 3/8" hairline emanating from the base on one side and a small half-moon shaped discoloration on the bottom of the reverse side. Height 8.5". From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
