A Staffordshire historical transferware soup plate depicting the signing of a peace treaty between the Quaker, William Penn, and the local Indians. There seems to be some question whether or not this event (Treaty of Shackamaxon, 1682) ever took place, but the Quakers did seem to have good relations with the Natives. This plate was made by the Staffordshire pottery of Thomas Godwin between 1834 and 1854. Obviously the designer of the transfer print was not familiar with the topography and flora of Pennsylvania. I love the palm trees! The plate measures 10 1/8 inches in diameter and is about 1 1/2 inches deep and is in excellent condition.
