Historic Odessa Foundation, The David Wilson Mansion, Inc.


The saucer survives in good condition.

Ex coll. Mrs. E. Tatnall (Mary Corbit) Warner.  A note in her handwriting on a paper label applied to the underside of a saucer (acc. no. 1971.757.16) states that the tea and coffee service to which the saucer belongs was acquired by Capt. James Jefferis for his daughter Ann, who married David Wilson Jr.

This deep saucer is part of a partial service of one slop bowl (1971.757.1), three coffee cups (1971.757.2-.4), a tea cup (1971.757.5), thirteen deep saucers (1971.757.6-.18), and four small plates (1971.757.19-.22).  The service is decorated with black transfer-printed designs of "Stately Homes," being images of English country houses and ruins.  This saucer shows an image of country house with a projecting central pavilion and a body of water in front.  The rim has a thick and a thin gold band around the inside.
