Life in early days of the republic was still very much tied to England and its resources. All of those who could afford to do so ordered their creamware sets of dishes and goods from English potters, who were only too happy to produce and decorate the requested items with images that memorialized Revolutionary War heroes, newly elected presidents, maritime merchants, and patriotic sentiments. One of the largest collections of such creamware items was amassed by the late S. Robert Teitelman. This publication highlights 50 pieces from the S. Robert Teitelman Collection at Winterthur as well as an additional 25 pieces of decorative arts objects from the Winterthur collection. Enhanced by essays that address life in the young republic, the Liverpool pottery industry, and the Atlantic maritime trade, the volume features some of the finest examples of this period.
