    Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Samuel Adams and John Hancock: Polychrome Liverpool Pitcher. 10" Liverpool pitcher with gold highlights and desirable transfers. One side depicts Sam Adams and John Hancock flanking a memorial to George Washington titled "The Memory of Washington and the Proscribed Patriots of America. Liberty, Virtue, Peace, Justice and Equity to All Mankind." The other side has a ship flying the American flag. A Federal eagle appears beneath the spout along with the initials of the owner "E H" and a quote by Thomas Jefferson warning against entangling alliances, dated 1804. Some light discoloration, a tight hairline in the base and a spider crack affecting the eagle. We do not see any evidence of repairs or restoration.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
