Overview and metadata sections

Richard Jordan was a Quaker minister who preached in Camden, New Jersey from 1809-1826. He was part of the abolitionist movement. He was born in Virginia, and moved to North Carolina before moving to New Jersey.

This collection is composed of three pieces of Staffordshire transferware pottery in commemoration of Richard Jordan, produced by Joseph Heath. There is a plate, a platter, and a pitcher. The image of the transfer shows Jordan walking along a cart path with fenced areas to the right and left and his house in the background with outbuildings on both sides; a large cow or ox is lying next to the fence on the right.

These are ordered alphabetically by type of object.
