The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (Level) 10" Historical Staffordshire Plate »

Circa 1825-1828: Enoch Wood & Sons produced dark blue historical Staffordshire transferware of American scenes in the two decades following the War of 1812 as a way to rekindle England's trade relationship with the United States. Their shell border with circular center series consists of American and Canadian views, and one of the most desirable scenes in today's market is the B & O Railroad plate with the level view. Both the level and incline views of the Baltimore and Ohio Railiroad plates were manufactured to commemorate the beginning of the railroad's construction in 1828 and thus were made prior to trains being used in America, thus making these views truly futuristic!

Early 19th Century Mochaware Marbleized/Agate Bowl »

Circa 1840: Agate or marbled - Also know as variegated designs were made by working several colors of slip together on the ware to give a marbleized, swirled, or spattered surface. This usually resulted in a busy surface pattern, which was pleasingly balanced with bands of checkering or impressed designs at the rim and foot. Manufactured in the 1770's, it is the earliest know example of slip on refined earthenware. The process was used to imitate geological stones like marble. Increased simplicity and uniformity of decoration such as simple banding without additional slip or incised designs marked later dipped wares, generally after 1840. This simplification was a way of cutting the production costs.
