JUG, ABOUT 1830
“General Jackson, the Hero of New Orleans” is inscribed above a portrait of Andrew Jackson, who despite the military reference is depicted here in civilian dress. It was probably produced during his presidency, as it is based on an 1828 engraving. The plate nearby uses the same design.
