ANGLO-AA1ERICAN P(OTTERY.
J. H. & CO.
.Joseph Heath & Co. were making goods for the American
market at Tunstall, England, in 1829. They were the makers
of the well-known riesidence of Richard Jordan design, which
is among the most abundant of old English patterns in Eastern
PennsYl vania and in New Jersey. It is found on entire table
services and on every size of plate then made, and was printed
in a greater variety of co 's a(d shaides, perhaps, than any
other American view. It was drawn by W. Mason, a drawing
teacher of Philadelphia, and eigraved by F. Kearney, by order
of some of the friends of Richarid Jordan, the eminent Quaker
preacher, after his death, which occurred in 1826. On the Lacks
of pieces bearing this print is the descriptive title in an irreg-
ular framework surrounded by an umbrella-shaped device.
The Jordan residence was at Newton, Gloucester county, N. J.
