The measurements of this pitcher are: 8-5/16 inches high at midpoint of spout 9 inches high at sides of spout, 4-9/16 inches diameter at table rim, 22-1/2 inches circumference. It is a most scarce SIX medallion portrait pitcher by Ralph Stevenson containing the portraits common to most four-medallion pieces at the top, Jefferson, Washington, La Fayette and Clinton, but also containing, at the bottom, the portraits of Kent (1763-1847, Chief Justice of the Courts of the State of New York), and Coke (pronounced COOK), Sir Edward Coke, 1552-1634, eminent English jurist.
The border here is large roses, consistent with the four-medallion pitchers , as opposed to Stevenson's Acorn and oak leaf, or Floral and Vine borders seen on the maker's other medallion pieces. The view of the Capital and Lady Justice is from a painting by Dutch artist Cornelis Janssens. This view is generally found under the Four Medallion listings. The only other examples currently known are a plate and a bowl (in black transfer). The central image shows Albany, the Capital of New York, and within the design is printed the words Capital Albany.
