Whitten House Patterns

Whitten House PatternsTransferware patterns owned by the 19th century Whitten family in Topsham, Maine and collected by the current owner of the Whitten House. They include dinnerware in the “English Cities” pattern by Enoch Wood & Sons (active 1818-1846) and teawares in the “Milkmaid” pattern by Thomas Rathbone & Co. (active 1810-1845). The maker of the child’s teaware set is unidentified. Such a set is listed in a Whitten family member’s estate inventory, as is the gold band ironstone tea set and the soft paste deer ornament. The Wood and Rathbone patterns were identified from shards buried on the property. The pieces are displayed in a stepback cupboard in the house’s restored 1827 kitchen.
