ANGLO-AMERICAN POTTERY.
T. G.
Thomas Green produced print-figured china at Fenton, Eng-
land, between 1847 and 1859. This manufacturer seems to have
used but one subject for his American patrons-the treaty of
Penn with the Indians. The conception of the engraver of
this design was indeed vague, as the Treaty Elm itself, under
which Penn, in 1682, made his treaty of friendship and good
will with the natives, is not represented. In its place are non-
descript trees with clumps of foliage surmounted by bunches of
unrecognizable fruit, pagodas and Oriental buildings. It is
probable that there are a dozen or more distinct varieties of
this imaginative design.
