Possibly Scottish delftware circular plate decorated with a dark blue cluster of three flowers with leaves in the center well and sponged circles around the outer rim edge. According to George Haggarty, this plate is similar to fragments found in a ceramic shard assemblage from the Delftfield pottery in Glasgow, Scotland. Scottish Port Records compiled by ceramics scholar George Haggarty, list "1,000 dozen Earthenware" left in the Ship Amity, Master Robt. Shaw, for Boston, on March 4, 1751" and "50 Cwt. of Earthenware, all British." departed on February 26, 1756, in the Ship Mary, with Master Donald Hyndman for Boston." These ceramics were likely delftware from the Delftfield Factory in Glasgow.
