Summer 2014 Newsletter Store Blog Image 2

The Museum Store recently received its order of blue-and-white transferware china from Staffordshire, England.  Mr. John Roth, the purveyor of this fine porcelain china, has provided a detailed account of its connection with our historic site.  He explained that a blue and white dinner plate with an image of The House of the Seven Gables was produced in the early 20th century.  While the factory of William Adams & Sons was the first to produce The House of the Seven Gables plate, production eventually moved to John H. Roth & Co.  The Museum Store maintains an exceptional relationship with John H. Roth & Co. to this day.  It would appear that the only other item with a longer sales history in our Museum Store is Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel, The House of the Seven Gables!
