Staffordshire pottery was an immediate success when brought to America in the 18th century. This type of earthenware was inexpensive, fashionable and distinguished by colorful transfer-printed designs. Its popularity continued throughout the 19th and 20th centuries with many designs featuring George Washington and Mount Vernon. John H. Roth & Company has been supplying Mount Vernon with Staffordshire souvenir ceramics for over half of a century. Today they produce wares in porcelain, but they still retain the elaborate and brilliant designs that have been enjoyed for generations.
