Teacher's Guide - English Colonial - Slipware Plate Details

This reusable guide covers 1650-1800 and such key people as King George III & George Washington. It is to be used in conjunction with the replica of an English slipware plate (EDU 113), which was made between 1650 and 1800 in Staffordshire, England. This area was a center for earthenware slipware manufacture. Among these are bowls, cups, jars, jugs, pots, teapots, and various types of dishes. Sometimes decorative dishes and plates were made to commemorate special events, such as weddings and christenings. Slipware plates were about 18 inches in diameter. Thomas Toft and his family were the most important Staffordshire slipware potters. Toft is most famous for his elaborate presentation dishes. They are the oldest and most vibrant of the English folk pottery traditions. Their designs included crudely-drawn animals, mermaids, people, coats-of-arms, crests, and other emblems. Sometimes they were decorated with figures of royalty such as King Charles II and his wife Queen Catherine of Braganza.
