Hand-painted saucers

These wares were made in England and exported to America. (Right) This partially reconstructed saucer is decorated with a delicate, continuous pattern of orange and brown flowers around its rim. A fragment of a saucer rim of this same pattern was found in a small pit cellar at Sangomo Town, eight miles upriver from Springfield, Illinois. The town was occupied between 1823 and 1850 (Mazrim 2007:247, Figure 14.6). (Lower Center) Part of a hand-painted saucer revealing a stylized floral pattern applied around the edge. (Left)
