Heritage hand painted dinnerware by Ridgway

This 57-piece set of earthenware features hand applied colors on a dark green transfer. This "Heritage" pattern was adapted from a series of sketches and sepia watercolors composed by William Henry Bartlett, then a a 29-year-old English artist. From June toNovember 1838 Bartlett traveled through eastern Canada creatingthe works, and these were later engraved onto steel plates for mass printing. Images from Bartlett ’s journey were published as "Canadian Scenery Illustrated", an 1842 collection featuring over one hundred steel engravings. Ridgway's "Heritage" pattern merged Canadian history and colorful dinnerware. Manufactured by Ridgway Pottery of Staffordshire England in the 1960's.
