Plates such as this very special one are historical Staffordshire, transfer-printed pottery with views of American patriotic figures, national buildings, and scenery that were created to appeal to buyers in the newly formed United States and sold through American outlets. Henry Francis du Pont collected and gathered a large number of Staffordshire Blue transfer ware with American views, buying examples during the 1950s to furnish the Blue Staffordshire Room at Winterthur. These historical views are the most desirable to American collectors, are richly decorated, and amazingly beautiful.
