Mount Vernon Prosperity China Collection by Mottahedeh

Beginning in the spring of 1757 George Washington placed orders to his English agents for “white stone” tableware, also known as English white stoneware.  By December 1757 the first shipment arrived from Bristol, and the full set of white salt-glaze stoneware included “6 dozen finest white stone plates,” along with “dishes, patti pans, mugs, tea pots, Slop Basons, butter dishes,” and “mustard pots”.  In the 1750s and 1760s the relatively inexpensive yet fashionable white-fired stoneware produced in England was the most widely used tableware in the American colonies, as it could be molded into a variety of specialized forms for use in dinner services and tea wares.  In need of all kinds of tablewares for Mount Vernon, Washington ordered large quantities of stoneware for his bachelor household.
The Mount Vernon Prosperity pattern is a glossy hard porcelain reproduction of the Staffordshire English Salt glaze ware that was very popular in colonial America.   This elegant and contemporary tableware is stain proof, dishwasher safe and microwaveable. The unusual contrasting matte finished rim is unglazed but is non-porous.  Produced by Mottahedeh.

The 4-piece place setting consists of the dinner, dessert, and bread and butter plates, plus the mug.

The 5 1/2" saucer coordinates with the mug and pot-de-creme products. This is the latest addition to this china collection.
