Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) 

Stoneware Jug 

C. 1824 

7 3/4" 


Very rare small-sized Albany-slip-glazed stoneware political jug impressed "25 000 MAJORITY / FOR / GNL JACKSON," Northeastern U.S. origin. This jug was made in protest of the Presidential Election of 1824. In a four-way race, John Quincy Adams won the presidency after it was brought to a House of Representatives vote, even though Jackson won a plurality of the popular vote. While the jug reads "25 000 MAJORITY," Jackson's popular vote total was 38,000 more than Adams's. A related jar with Albany-slip-glaze and incised ship, likely by the same maker, stamped "25 0000 MAJORITY / GEN'L JACKSON," is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. 


Excellent condition with a minor spout nick.
