Blue Crab Pie Plate

Since the era of exploration, the Chesapeake Bay has been a key waterway for the colony of Virginia. The Chesapeake and the Potomac River, a Chesapeake watershed, also yielded a bounty of seafood. Fishing, before the opening of the Distillery, became one of Washington's most profitable enterprises. The bay provided shad, herring, bass, oysters and most famously - the Maryland Blue Crab. Records show that in 1799 George Washington purchased four dozen crabs for ten shillings.
The round pie plate is handmade with lead-free and cadmium free American clay in Bedford, Virginia.
The ruffled edge dish is 9 ¾" wide and 1 ½" deep.
Made in the USA.
