Rowantrees Pottery opened in 1934 and was in production until 2009. This small pottery studio was founded by Adelaide Pearson and her partner, Laura Paddock in the small Maine coastal village of Blue Hill. . The third and last owner. Sheila Varrnum, recently passed away.

This is a 5.5 inch plate in the glaze color called "Mist Blue" which is a speckled light blue over the local red marine clay. All the glazes were originally developed by Laura Paddock from minerals collected on the peninsula. This plate is unusual in two ways. It is slightly larger than the more common 5" small plate and has a straighter sided rim. It may have been designed to go under a jam pot. The production mark, a handwritten "ROWANTREES, Blue Hill, ME" in blue underglaze, is not listed in Andrew Phelan's new book, "Following the Brick Path, The Story of Rowantrees Pottery." This plate is in very good vintage condition with no crack or chips. There is some surface crazing which makes me think it is one of the older pieces.
