This dish features the famous old Elm (which was cut down in 1861): the building is the Congregational Church (after a fire in 1851 it was no longer in use). Buildings in the background include the Baptist Church, the Maplewood Institute and the Berkshire Hotel. The border has three reserves that repeat the view of the Church.

Mark: Blue printed Clewes and title on the side and impressed mark on the base.

BROKEN IN TWO AND REGLUED.This is your chance to buy as a shelf piece a large American View item until you find that perfect piece for your collection. The crack runs from the top through the white flower and becomes tighter at the well where it is hard to see. It is difficult to photograph as the dark blue glaze is glossy like a mirror.
