Pattern Category: Events

Object Type: Wares for Coffee and Tea


  • Length: 6.5 inches
  • Width: 7.5 inches


Here is a small pitcher, probably used for milk or cream, whose design is much different than the plate with the same scene. The background, the placement of elements in the design,  and arrangement of the text is very different than on the plate (Landing of the Fathers at Plymouth #1) which is in this exhibit. This version omits the date of the landing, Dec. 22, 1620, which is seen on the plate.  The design was intended to boost good trade with and bolster the pride of Americans in their new country.
