Thomas Jefferson: Impressive Liverpool Creamware

Lot 43011 Details

Description
Thomas Jefferson: Impressive Liverpool Creamware Pitcher with Striking Gold-leaf Embellishments. Portrait of Jefferson with name above and "President of the United States of America" below, surrounded by a garland into which is woven a streamer with the names of the States. Under the pouring lip is a figure of Apollo and the legend "A present for a friend," and on the reverse is a sailing vessel flying the American flag with "Success to Trade" below. Aside from minor wear to the gold leaf, it is in exceptional condition, with no apparent indications of repair or restoration. Height 8.5". This pitcher was clearly custom-ordered as a gift, as stock versions were not made with the elaborate gold decoration. After the Peace Treaty of 1783 bygones were quickly bygones and a brisk trade flourished between the newly-independent United States and the Mother Country. A staple of that trade was the popular creamware manufactured in Liverpool. Thousands of utilitarian and decorative examples were sold in America, although the vast majority had subject matter other than American presidents. From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
