This book showcases the world's finest collection of English creamware made for American customers in the 1760-1820 period. It includes pottery that memorialises revolutionary heroes and newly elected presidents; depicts the early 19th-century firefighters of Boston; illustrates the struggle for liberty and the battle to end slavery; and records naval battles and scenes of early American life with hand-painted and transfer printed images on the smooth shiny glaze of English creamware. Despite political embargoes, declarations of war, and skirmishes on land and sea, British potters were able to provide goods so desirable and meaningful to the American market that they transcended the frequent hostilities. At every opportunity sympathetic English potters celebrated and commemorated the American cause, eager to secure the custom of this emerging nation. These wares capture the spirit of America. They have been saved, passed down as heirlooms, and been a source of pleasure for collectors. Through the generosity of his family and friends, Winterthur is able to share the S.
Robert Teitelman collection, which celebrates the establishment of America, the development of its maritime trade through the port of Liverpool in England, and the ceramic souvenirs that wished Success to America.
