The view on this pitcher is found with at least two borders: the border with flowers and scroll work seen here, and the Acorn and Oak Leaves border, with Four Medallions, by Ralph Stevenson, though an example of the latter version is not represented in this exhibit.   The original Dutch Church of Albany, the oldest church in upstate New York, was a blockhouse  church built in 1656.   The big stone church was built around it in 1715,  and it was demolished in 1806.  This view is often accompanied by vignettes of Erie Canal views on either side of the pitcher.
