JOHN ADAMS President of the United States of America transferware bowl, circa 1797-1800. A portrait of Adams is featured in the center of the bowl surrounded by three figures including one woman with the scales of justice and a winged angel with a Liberty cap atop a pole. On the outside of the bowl is a portrait of "His Excellency General Washington Commander in Chief of the Forces of the United States of America & President of the Congress", as well as a portrait "Benj. Franklin Born at Boston in New England 17. Jan 1700". The perimeter is also embellished with an image of Neptune and a scene of three nude ocean nymphs and a child. The outer transfers on this rare bowl are in excellent condition with strong definition. The portion of the inside bowl that features Adams has some typical wear within the transfer, from use. This extraordinary rarity is in otherwise excellent condition, free of chips or cracks, and an exceptional display piece for a President for whom few items of any kind exist. 9 3/4" diameter and stands 4 1/4" tall. $6,000-7,000
