Plan of the City of Washington 



C. 1800-1810

11 1/4" 


One side features allegorical figures of America and Britannia, their shields and arms set aside, viewing together a plan of Washington, D.C. loosely derived from the Andrew Ellicott plan of 1792. On the reverse, a memorial obelisk bears the caption "Washington in Glory, America in Tears." Beneath the spout a sixteen linked states transfer, which is the only jug we have seen large enough to display this massive transfer.
