Volkmar Pottery, located in New York (Brooklyn) produced a series of historical plaques (large plates, essentially, with holes drilled in the foot rim so they could be hung on the wall). Most of the views involved George Washington and pictured his various headquarters around the Northeast during the American Revolution. This example shows Washington’s Headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Also known now as the Longfellow House, this building served as Washington’s Headquarters during the Siege of Boston in 1775-1776. The pottery plaque dates c. 1900. It is almost 11 ½” in diameter. Underglaze blue decoration with simple blue bands on the border. Faintly impressed “Volkmar” with a rectangular stamp on the back (too faint to photograph with my camera). This example is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, lines, etc. American Art Pottery at its best.
