Blue-and-white earthenware, ca. 1825, from the Dickinson Faimily artifacts collection.

Houghton Library, Harvard University

Emily Norcross Dickinson, Emily Dickinson’s mother, owned this blue-and-white printed earthenware. She probably acquired it in preparation for her marriage to Edward Dickinson in May 1828. Dark blue printed tableware graced the sideboard and table in the dining room at the Homestead in Amherst.
