Prosperity 10" Dinner Plate
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.
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.
