by a ship builder or a merchant shipping company in the Portsmouth area in recognition
of his support...his efforts in representing the interests of his region for which the
statesman gained national prominence for his representation of New England shipping
interests. Webster practiced law in Portsmouth, New Hampshire from 1807 to 1812
when he was elected to Congress. He opposed Jefferson's embargo and the War of
1812 as it obstructed New England shipping interests of which Webster championed.

Obviously unique, one of only a few pieces of creamware extant that was presented
to a famous American.

This pitcher displays transfers including a ship being built prior to launching, under
the spout surmounting eagle with 16 stars is “DANIEL WEBSTER” within oval wreath.
The reverse shows "The Shipwright's Arms".
