Ferry Farm Cherry Punch Bowl

Ferry Farm Cherry Punch Bowl

This exclusive Ferry Farm Cherry Punch Bowl was inspired by several enameled creamware ceramic fragments excavated from the cellar at the Washington house site. When mended, they formed a punch bowl termed a “sneaker,” which would have been passed from person to person, with each one taking a drink. The original bowl dates to the period 1765-1772, the later years of Mary Washington’s time at Ferry Farm. The bowl was likely manufactured in England by the Cockpit Hill pottery in Derby, as indicated by its distinctive vertical crazing and cherry accents. The reproduction bowl measures approximately 7-1/4” across the top and 3-1/4” deep. Enjoy with punch for a festive occasion or use as a decorative accent.

Botanical Prints

Bluebells Print

Rose print
Enlarge Image
Botanists in the 18th century meticulously recorded the newly discovered flora and fauna of the world with pen and ink. These illustrations were copied onto printing plates by engravers. Once printed, they were brightened with hand-applied watercolors, and distributed to an audience eager to capture the wonders of the colonies across the seas.

In this tradition, James Linton Sain recorded two native Virginians – the Mary Washington Rose and the Virginia Bluebell. These two prints were first available at Kenmore in 1991 for Sain’s one-man show, "From a Virginia Garden: Botanical Watercolors of James Linton Sain". Now available once again for a limited time from our archives.

Kenmore Flower Print Set #WS222 - $12.95 (set of two prints)
Prints measure 11"x14" each and are printed on archival paper.
