Made exclusively for Mount Vernon in Staffordshire, England, this coaster approximately 4” in diameter has an image of Mount Vernon in the traditional blue and white Staffordshire pattern.
Staffordshire pottery was an immediate success when brought to America in the 18th century. This type of earthenware was inexpensive, fashionable and distinguished by colorful transfer-printed designs. Its popularity continued throughout the 19th and 20th centuries with many designs featuring George Washington and Mount Vernon. John H. Roth & Company has been supplying Mount Vernon with Staffordshire souvenir ceramics for over half of a century. These reproductions are produced in the same factories in Staffordshire, England that supplied Mount Vernon in the 1930's.
