The blue on white Staffordshire ironstone depicts different Historic Colonial Scenes on each piece. The photo of the coffee pot above was sent to us by Joan Atkinson. The coffee pot appears to be authentic as it has the Liberty Blue stamp. We are not sure about the lid. If anyone can document this piece or if you have more information on this let us know. Are there other pieces out there?

Inside "" is the name of the Historic Scene decal on piece.

*Note: This platter was not part of the original Liberty Blue but was made as an accessory piece after the Liberty Blue had been made.  No Declaration of Independence platter with the Liberty Blue backstamp was ever made that we are aware of!

The Benjamin Franklin Federal Savings and Loan was a a large financial institution in the Pacific Northwest, whose board of directors contacted Enoch Wedgewood to develop a unique pattern of dinnerware exclusively for them.  As an incentive to their customers, they offered pieces and place settings at reasonable prices, depending on the amount of money deposited; i.e. the first deposit of $50 dollars one was given a four piece place setting free.  Subsequent place settings could be purchased for $4.95.  Coasters with Benjamin Franklin´s picture, made exclusively for the Ben Franklin bank, were given away with each place setting purchased.  In October 1976, the Ben Franklin newsletter announced that account holders had only until the end of the year to obtain more Liberty Blue pieces at these special prices. (Antiques and Collectibles from Kaleden P1-2) Liberty Blue than became a grocery store promotional item for five additional years.
