Hunt’s Mulberry Ware China Plate

The two pieces of Mulberry Ware China were once part of a dinner service owned by the family of Allin Hunt who lived in and inherited the John Hunt House through his father from his grandfather John Hunt Jr. Allin died in the millrace in front of his home in 1844 – a mystery that was never solved. Parts of the millrace are still visible.

The china pattern is Oriental in design and named Vincennes and was made in the Samuel Alcock china factory in England which made and exported china to America between 1832 and 1851.
