“Exchange Baltimore” Transferware Plate

“Exchange Baltimore” Transferware Plate


Staffordshire transferware plate by Henshall & Co, circa 1825.


Dimensions: Approximately 10” diameter.



The border is decorated with flowers and fruit in a pattern used by Henshall and Co. with a number of its designs.


The center contains an image of the Exchange Building, with other buildings in the background and people and a horse and carriage in the foreground.


The reverse bears printed mark and an impressed mark “25” over “2”.


The building was designed by B.H. Latrobe. It was erected in Baltimore in 1815 between Water and Second Streets.


The building was a four-story structure, 255 feet long, with two wings projecting beyond the central portion. One wing was occupied by the United States Bank and the other the Customs House. The central portion was surmounted by a dome and used as the exchange.


The source of the design apparently is an 1823 engraving by William G. Mason.
