Description: Plate c. 1820, “America and Independence,” Printed Transfer Staffordshire: Two-Story Building, with Sheep on the Lawn, by James & Ralph Clews. The 8.75” diameter plate with scalloped edges and cobalt blue transfer print, listed in “Historical Staffordshire,” 2nd Edition (2000), by Jeffrey B. Snyder, pp. 42-43. Snyder notes that the Clews brothers “specialized in high quality blue transfer printed wares,” producing several pattern series for export to America and Russia. The “America and Independence” series features robed women on either side of the central view of a building in the distance. The woman on the left, blindfolded “Justice,” holds a portrait of Washington and stands on a tablet labeled “AMERICA AND.” The kneeling woman on the right wears the “Liberty” Cap and holds the Liberty Pole, while kneeling on a tablet labeled “INDEPENDENCE.” The names of 15 states festoon the outer border. Base has imprinted maker’s mark of a crown encircled by “Clews Warranted Staffordshire.” Terrific cobalt blue hues highlight this handsome plate, which is a valuable and rare antique commemoration of America’s independence. PROVENANCE: The Private Estate of a Atlanta, Georgia Antiques Dealer. Wt is 1 pd
