“British Views” Plate and a Little Baseball History

One of the ongoing projects at the Lab is the expansion of our Diagnostic Artifacts in Maryland webpage (www.jefpat.org/diagnostic/Index.htm). Our director, Patricia Samford, is currently updating the webpage to include19th-century ceramics like this plate depicting an English country estate in Yorkshire. The plate comes from a site in Baltimore on the property that became Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. The house previously on the site was built as a single-family dwelling in the early 19th century and later became the location of Babe Ruth’s family home and tavern between 1906 and 1912. Look for more updates on interesting ceramics as Tricia continues her project!

Staffordshire pottery depicting actual
buildings in England was most commonly
made between 1813 and 1839.
