Lawrence and Bainbridge, War of 1812 Naval Luster Jug

An English Sunderland luster jug with transfer print portraits of two important American heroes of the War of 1812. Captain James Lawrence’s famous last words are recorded here above his image as “don’t surrender the ship”. ┬áIt is rare to find two such significant officers commemorated on a single piece.

There are two small hairlines at the rim.
