This vase features species of native American plants around its body. North American bison heads serve as handles; a profile portrait of George Washington embellishes each side; and each of the six biscuit-relief panels around the base depicts a different scene from American history, among them a minuteman with his cannon, William Penn signing a treaty with the Indians, and the Boston Tea Party.
