JOSEPH STUBBS.
APROMINENT and successful potter at Dale Hall, Burslem
from about 1790 to 1829, was Joseph Stubbs. Little is
known of his personal iistory or of his career as a
potter, save that he manufactured quite extensively for the
United States market. Among other things he produced a
series of dark blue designs of American subjects, usually or
plates, platters, vegetable dishes, and probably other pieces be-
longing to table services. The border design of this series is
a handsome combination of scrolls and flowers broken into
sections by eagles with half-spread wings. arranged at equal
distances apart-three eagles on plates and four on platters.
Many of his pieces were not marked with his name, which,
when used, was simply the word STUBBS, impressed, but all
china bearing this border is known to have been made by him.
Mr. Stubbs died in 1836, having retired from business a few
years before that date.
