AMERICAN SHIP 'ALBION' AND 'THE JOINERS ARMS,' ENGLISH CREAMWARE BLACK TRANSFER-PRINTED PRESENTATION JUG, STAFFORDSHIRE OR LIVERPOOL, 1819-23.

Lot 538: AMERICAN SHIP 'ALBION' AND 'THE JOINERS ARMS,' ENGLISH CREAMWARE BLACK TRANSFER-PRINTED PRESENTATION JUG, STAFFORDSHIRE OR LIVERPOOL, 1819-23.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Printed under the spout in black enamel "TO MR. SHARP" within a printed ribbon-tied berried laurel branch and wheat stalk, printed and heightened in enamels on one side with a portrait of the ship "ALBION," and printed on the reverse with "THE JOINERS ARMS" and motto "JOIN TRUTH WITH TRUST." Height 9 inches.Built in 1819, the packet ship "Albion" was of the Liverpool Black Ball Line, operating between New York and Liverpool. She was wrecked off the coast of Ireland, near Kinsale, April 25, 1822, with a loss of forty-six lives.Mr. Sharp, whose name appears under the spout, has the distinction of ordering a lynching of the merchant ship 'Victoria' in Liverpool. As she was preparing to depart a dispute arose among the owners, two of whom were Liverpool merchants and one of these was Mr. Sharp. Mr. Sharp ordered the captain of the ship 'Victoria' to remain in port; however, the captain ignored both Liverpool merchants since he was also obligated to the American owner in Charleston. Mr. Sharp ordered his men on board, who not only cut the sails but also commandeered a brig coming into port, chaining it to the 'Victoria' so both ships would jam at the gate. The 'Victoria' sat until evening when a group of American sailors went aboard to repair the sails. With the support of civil authorites, the captain was able to depart at high tide aided by a steamer to tow him down the river. Although Mr. Sharp had engaged numerous men, and two vessels prepared to tow the 'Victoria' up the river, the presence of the authorities proved too imposing for him to procede. According to testimony "The dock and harbor masters were arraigned to render an account of the disorder in the dock, but the authorities allowed Mr. Sharp's conduct to pass unnoticed." Published in House Documents, Otherwise Publ. as Executive Documents: 13th Congress, 2d Session-49th Congress, 1st Session, Doc. No. 115, "Search or Seizure of American Vessels on Coast of Africa, &c.," March 3, 1841, pp. 748-749.Provenance: William R. & Teresa F.

Height 8 7/8 inches.Provenance: William R. & Teresa F. Kurau, Lampeter, Pennsylvania, June 2, 2004.Literature: Robert H. McCauley, "Liverpool Transfer Designs on Anglo-American Pottery," p. 128, n. 260 and pl. XVI; and pl. XII.An identical jug, also with a vacant name banner under the ship, is discussed and illustrated in S. Robert Teitelman, Patricia A. Halfpenny and Ronald W. Fuchs II, "Success to America: Creamware for the American Market featuring the S. Robert Teitelman Collection at Winterthur," pp. 150-151, cat. n. 40. Another version, depicting both ships flying American flags and house flags initialed "W," is on p. 279, cat. n. 76. According to Laura F. Sprague (as cited in Teitelman, et. al.) it is possible that Captain Lemuel Moody (1768-1846), a key figure in the construction of the lookout and lighthouse, may have himself ordered seventy-five Portland Observatory jugs; however, at the time of publication only twelve were known. The authors speculate that if a single person purchased that many jugs, they were probably meant to be later sold and inscribed with the name of a particular ship.
