Dating from the early years of the Eighteenth Century, this fine example of early English earthenware relates to one in the collection of George Washington, our country's first president. It was made in about 1720 in the London area, probably at Lambeth. In excellent condition, with some professionally repaired chips one to the upper edge and several to the base, it has a chinoiserie design of passion flowers and trailing vines with an inner-rim border above a stylized flower. An "L" is painted on the inside bottom rim. Approximately 10-1/2 inches in diameter and four inches tall.
