This plate, made in about 1820 in the Staffordshire district of Great Britain, was made for export to America. Thousands of similar plates were sent to ports on the east coast to be sold all over the new United States. This plate, made by Enoch Wood and Sons, was good for people of Massachusetts since the title is "Landing of the Fathers at Plymouth," and celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Plymouth landing. The event and the 1620 date were familiar to every school child in New England, as well as in other parts of the country to the west, if not in the South, where Jamestown was well-known.
