Washington DC Blue Staffordshire Plate
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.
The Washington DC plate features the United States Capitol, Supreme Court, White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Mount Vernon, and portraits of George and Martha Washington. The plate is 10" in diameter.
John H. Roth & Company has been supplying Mount Vernon with Staffordshire souvenir ceramics for over half a century. Today they produce wares in porcelain which retain the elaborate and brilliant designs that have been enjoyed for generations.
Made in Staffordshire, England.
