American Eagle Great Seal of the United States Jug

American Eagle Great Seal of the United States Jug

Catalogue No: J114

£ 225.00


A large, impressive jug, or pitcher, as my American friends say. Featuring a large transfer of a US ship, in full sail, flying a large Stars & Stripes flag. On the reverse a pseudo coat of arms, loosely based on the arms of the Shipwrights Company, a London guild.

Beneath the spout,  a version of the Great Seal of the United States, showing 13 stars relevant to the number of states which formed the country only 20-30 years earlier. Awesome!


Circa 1800-10


Approx - 8 inches (200mm) tall.


In poor to fair condition having been professionally re-stuck at some point in its 200-210 year history.
