Joseph Heath & Co. (estab. 1828, closed 1841), Maker
Richard Jordan was a highly regarded Quaker minister. In 1825, a friend drew a sketch of him, with his cow and farm house in the background. This sketch became a Staffordshire china transferware pattern from 1828-1841 by Joseph Heath & Co. "The Residence of the Late Richard Jordan," was popular in the American export market appearing in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors of plates, saucers, cups, pitchers and other ceramic forms.
