This is a very rare and historic War of 1812 Transfer-decorated Staffordshire Pottery Pitcher. It was probably produced by Enoch Wood & Sons, England, no makers mark, c. 1815-20. One side with a large sharp Transfer depicting, "The Constitution's Escape From The British Squadron After a Case of Sixty Hours," with the names of each vessel identified. The opposite side depicting, "The Constitution Taking the Cyane and Levant," both scenes are with printed titles in black below. The bright violet painted decorative lustrous borders and edge rims show light wear, specially upon the handle. Some deft conservation to the central background paint within the transfer decoration on the "The Constitution Taking the Cyane and Levant". Overall, a lovely example that is of a larger size with two important War of 1812 Transfer-decorated USS CONSTITUTION Naval Battles!
