1825 Staffordshire Flow Blue State Plate

that Memorializes George Washington

This State Plate is from the America and Independence Series produced by James and Ralph Clews. It is a beautiful dark flow blue with Mt. Vernon in the middle with two women in the foreground. The border names each of the states on a ribbon running around it.  George Washington is pictured in a medallion on the left held by Justice wearing what appears to be a Masonic Apron with the Square and Compasses on it. A Liberty Cap on a pole is to the right.  The reverse has the impressed mark of Clews on it with a crown in the center.  It measures 6 5/8 inches in diameter and is circa 1825.
