    William Henry Harrison: Massive 1840 Campaign Pitcher, Widely Regarded as the Premier 19th Century Ceramic Political Display Item. One really must see the scale of this 11.375" pitcher in person to fully appreciate its display presence. It features four portrait panels with log cabins above each and patriotic eagles below. "The Ohio Farmer" above the portrait and his name below. Manufactured by the American Pottery Company of Jersey City, New Jersey, it is coveted both by political collectors and enthusiasts of American-made pottery (the vast majority of political ceramics of this ear were manufactured in England or France for the American market). Condition is outstanding, virtually mint except for one hardly detectable hairline, noted for accuracy. We are aware of perhaps 4 or 5 other examples in leading political collections, but this is our first opportunity to handle one. Clearly one of the premier items in the Dolson Collection. From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
