Clive W. Bridgham (1951–2018), Providence, Rhode Island ; Estate of Clive W. Bridgham; sold by [Gustave J. S. White Auctioneers, Newport, Rhode Island, June 27, 2017]; purchased by an anonymous individual ; consigned to [Crocker Farm, Sparks, Maryland, March 23, 2019, lot 73]; purchased by MFAH.  The jug was found among the possessions of Clive W. Bridgham, a descendant of Samuel W. Bridgham (1775–1840), who served as the first mayor of Providence, Rhode Island. Samuel Bringham’s nephew Thomas Paine (1786–1859) was a naval officer who resided in Savannah and Charleston, where he possibly acquired the jug.  The present example and a related jug were purchased at a Rhode Island auction of Bridgham’s personal property by the same individual and consigned for sale at Crocker Farm.
