THOMAS, JOHN AND JOSHUA MAYER.
The Dale Hall Works, Burslem. were taken by Thomas, John
and Joshua Mayer in 1829, from Joseph Stubbs. No American
printed designs appear to have been made by this firm. T.
Mayer (supposed to be the Thomas above mentioned), how-
ever, seems to have been in business alone at one period, as the
mark which occurs on some of the American designs is simply
T. Mayer, Stoke. He produced a set of dark blue prints show-
ing the Arms or Seals of some of the United States. It is
probable that all of the thirteen original States were repre-
sented in this series, though some of them have not as yet
come to light. The border was a handsome device composed
of trumpet flowers, with three or four stars or wheel-shaped
ornaments at equi-distant points around the edge. A list of
the designs of this set which are known to collectors follows.
