Homer Laughlin China, Liberty, Historical America W449 China Replacement

Homer Laughlin China, Liberty Historical America W449 China Pattern made by Homer Laughlin China.

Historical American Subjects was produced for the F.  W.  Woolworth Company who sold it through their retail stores.  At least nineteen pieces were made, each decorated with scenes reproduced from the original works of Joseph Boggs Beale.
Joseph Boggs Beale was most famous for developing pictures for magic-lantern shows, and, indeed, all the Historical America pictures are from these paintings.
This pattern was also made in the red, pattern #W342. Though very hard to find, theres a lot of enthusiasm for this line.
