I)iTRAIT I'LATi'ES IN DANK ILl'E.
Among the most interesting blue designs are those which
possess, at the upper margin, medallion portraits of Revolu-
tionary heroes, such as Washington, Lafayette and Jefferson.
with different central views. These were, doubtless, produced
by more than one potter. On some the name of Clews is said
to have been found, while others, judging by the border pat-
terns, were probably made by R. S. W. or A. Stevenson. Plates
bearing these portraits are so uncommon that it has not been
possible to complete a list of them, and, because of their some-
what uncertain origin, those that have come to my notice are
here grouped together.
