One of the top highlights of this auction. It will be hard to image just how much larger this particular Liverpool pitcher artifact is from other period pitcher artifacts. This pitcher measures about 10 ½” tall and the mouth is about 5 ¾” wide. The widest part is about 8” across. Beautiful side profile transfer of Washington which is a fairly scarce transfer, only seen on a couple of other Liverpool creamware artifacts. Inscribed as “The President Of The United States Of America”. English import. Comical transfer on opposite side thinly veiling the notion of what happens when a sailor hits port. This transfer is quiet rare we think. This pitcher is listed as #81 in the Teitelman collection and is the actual plate example as recorded in the recent 2010 reference book “Creamware for the American Market”. Interestingly this example is a full inch taller than reported in this book so is a mistake in the book. This is a massive pitcher indeed. We know there was a hairline in the plate example inside the collection but we cannot detect it at all. This jug is in excellent condition. It is clear that the restorer was absolutely brilliant because the jug rings true. We consider this as minor and not an issue. Incredible display presentation and would power any 3-D collection or used as a centerpiece. Similar examples of these massive jugs have exceeded $10,000 in the past and approached $15,000 for some. We believe this artifact should scale to those levels. The first image does project the color more closely than do the other images. Estimate: $10,000-12,000
