Antique Creamware Pitcher / Jug Depicting War Of 1812 - Wasp Captures Frolic:
Antique Creamware Pitcher / Jug Depicting War of 1812 - WASP Captures Frolic
You are offerding on a very nice and historic Antique Pitcher or Jug in a creamware finish that has a transfer of the Battle of 1812 between the US Sloop of War, the WASP, fighting and capturing the British Sloop of War, the Frolic on October 18, 1812. on the other side is a transfer of the "Arms of the United States" depicting the Eagle with Shield and arrows with a slogan under the transfer which says "Under this we Profper". I don't know if it was an intentional misspelling instead of "Prosper". Right under the spout is a picture of a Roman Soldier with the inscription below "Liberty". On the bottom is has black, an outline of a Boston Minuteman with Drums and hard to read is an impressed "USA" and a number below which I cannot read, but would guess it is GL-71. The pitcher is in very good condition with no chips or cracks, but does suffer from crazing throughout. This is a wonderful find for that War historian or an Antique Pitcher or Jug collector. Priced to sell.
Thanks for visiting my listing and good luck in your search.
