This Historical Plate is of the Meeting House in Old Sturbridge Village, Sturbridge, Mass. Built in 1832, the Meeting House was the universally recognized symbol of the New England town in the early 19th century. It is still standing today.
This 10" plate was signed by the artist: Alice Cranston Fenner. It was made by Wood & Sons in Burslem England and has the mark they used beginning in 1931 until approximately 1940. Burslem has the proud title of "mother of the potteries". As early as the 17th century this town was noted above all others for the production of the best classes of pottery made in England.
It's in fine condition, and certainly captures a piece of history that makes a fine decorated plate for display or use.
