The DHS has chosen the “English Mushroom” design for its 2010 Dedham Pottery Limited Edition Collector’s Plate.

English Mushroom full plate

This design is both rare and artistically attractive. According to Jim Kaufman, the Society’s volunteer pottery curator, this design is one of several variations on the mushroom which the Dedham Pottery produced. The “English Mushroom” is a design name that is found listed in an early (circa 1916) price list of the company’s ware.

Each piece is hand painted. Full delivery is expected by August with lower numbered plates available as early as June. Price: $88 (plus tax) for DHS members; $98 (plus tax) for non-members. Additional $10 if shipping via insured USPS is needed.
