c. 1824 Lafayette’s Triumphal Return to America Tour Period, Historical Copper Lusterware Pitcher titled, “CORNWALLIS Resigning his Sword at York Town Oct. 19, 1781” and “LAFAYETTE (Crowned in Glory),” Choice Very Fine.

This lovely Historical Copper Lusterware Pitcher measures 7.5” tall x 4.75” at its base. There are three historical black transfer illustrations displayed within white backgrounds, surrounded by yellow and coppery-brown decorative trim at center. There are some scratches and numerous small spots of central glaze loss on the body from wear apparently while in actual use as shown. One side has the legend: “Cornwallis Resigning his Sword at Yorktown Oct. 19, 1781”. This design is listed as C. 29 on page 82 in “Anglo-American Ceramics Part I” reference by Arman. The other side reads: “LaFayette (Crowned in Glory)” which is listed as L.1 on page 123 in the Arman reference. A smaller transfer under the spout shows a lovely array of fruit. In our EAHA October 2016 auction we sold a similar example for $2,160. A scarce large size historic decorative commemorative patriotic pitcher, imported from England to be sold in America during Lafayette’s 1824 Triumphal Return and Tour of America.
