Though the back stamp seems to suggest otherwise, Rowland and Marsellus were not Staffordshire potters but American importers who commissioned various English companies to supply them the transfer-printed commodity. Various souvenir items were imported from 1890 through the 1930's.

This shallow bowl commemorates George Washington, Father of our Country. The center of the bowl features Washington's Headquarters at Valley Forge 1777-78. The surrounding border contains six cartouches with depictions of Washington at prayer at Valley Forge; Washington Monument; Letitia Penn School; Washington Memorial Chapel; Soldiers Hut and the Wayne Monument. The bowl measures 10" across, with no cracks, chips, nicks or repairs; there is light overall crazing. The back contains an impressive back-stamp for the R & M Company as well as quotation by Cyrus Townsend Brady. Beautiful dark blue transfer and a wonderful historical piece of Americana from the early twentieth century.
