*Sometimes you add something to your collection that turns out to be more interesting than you thought.*

Such was the case with this Charles Field Haviland platter with a maritme battle scene, which we shared during Show and Tell at the Williamsburg 2003 conference. The platter, in perfect codition, bear the green factory back mark CFH/GDM from the 1880`s. A painted inscription on the back identifies the subject:"Sinking of father`s ship. The Alabama. June 1864." An artists signature follows: "A.S.Bryan1897."
