Staughton's Church, Philadelphia - Stevenson & Williams

Pattern Category: Places

Series: Acorn and Oak Leaves Border

Alternate Names: Octagon Church, Boston

Object Type: Wares for Coffee and Tea


  • Diameter: 4.25 inches

Considered Rare


A Cup plate of either 3.5 or 4 inches is the only form and size in which this view appears for the Stevenson version (see Ridgway version). The correct title is never on the reverse and all that we have seen bear the incorrect title for the Octagon Church.  So we have put that mark in the mark section. This Baptist Church was on Sampson Street and was dedicated in 1812.  The building was torn down some time later on in the century.
