A HISTORICALLY FASCINATING CREAMWARE JUG MADE IN ENGLAND FOR EXPORT TO AMERICA C.1802 WITH 3 GREAT POLYCHROMED TRANSFERS



This is one of my all-time favorite jugs, not only because of its beauty, but because of the history illustrated in each of its three transfers.  In one an American soldier is standing under a great early American Revolutionary War flag.  And in the one under the spout is a magnificent eagle with shield surrounded by President Jefferson's warning in 1802 to avoid "entangling alliances." And the third side pictures the two "PROSCRIBED PATRIOTS" after whom this jug is named.  Can you name these two American patriots whose initials are given as "SA" and "JH"?  Email us with your answer.  The quotes along with the incredible details in each transfer are fascinating and add a lot to appreciating the story they tell.  Unfortunately I am not able to zoom in close enough to photograph them.  Let me also point out the importance of polychroming the transfers which is a highly desirable extra.  It would be rare enough to use 2 or 3 colored enamels besides black but I count SIX different colors!  In excellent condition with some minor rim flakes that have been removed.  It is also worth noting that this specific eagle and shield are like a trade mark of the Herculaneum Pottery which produced the finest creamware of all the potteries in the region in the early 1800's
