The pitcher measures 4-1/8”T x 2-1/2”. The color of the pitcher is a pure white. This is a significant piece of historic pottery that is worthy of inclusion in a museum collection or by an advanced collector. This very rare and finely molded pitcher dating to that time reflects events in the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin written by Harriet Beecher Snow in 1852. One side of the pitcher shows Uncle Tom standing on an auction block being sold while his wife and child sit at his feet. The other side shows Eliza, Tom’s wife, and child escaping from the plantation master across the frozen Ohio River. The handle is a pleading slave looking up with his hands folded in prayer. Around the base is a row of stylized tobacco plants.
