Karin Goldstein, Curator of Collections and Library, Plimoth PlantationDishes and other ceramics including tea wares and tiles have been a favorite type of souvenir for more than a century. Pottery with images of the Pilgrims were made as early as 1819 in England, when blue and white dishes featuring the Landing of the Pilgrims were made by the Staffordshire firm of Enoch Wood. Since then, Pilgrim souvenir dishes were made in other English towns, in Germany and Austria, and in America. Karin Goldstein presents an overview of dishes with Pilgrim images, including an examination of illustrations/motifs, form and importers' marks. Included with museum admission.
