American Scenery - Job and John Jackson

The American Scenery Series was the largest series of American views made for export to the United States.  In May of 1831 the New York Commercial Advertiser announced that a shipment of “Job and John Jackson’s Burslem Superior Ware with very elegant American views” had been received by distributors Sherman and Gillin.  The views, numbering at least forty, were transfer-printed on dinner and dessert wares in the lighter colors of black, light blue, brown, green, pink and purple; the Jackson brothers were reported to have produced no dark blue wares. Source prints of the views were from The History and Topography of the United States, John Howard Hinton, editor, published in two volumes between 1830 and 1832.
