Check out the stunning plate and mug designed by Mary Rhinelander, to celebrate Gloucester’s Quatercentenary. Wonderful Gloucester iconic imagery graces the blue and white ware, including the Greasy Pole, schooner (looks like the Thomas E. Lannon?), Nessie (Gloucester’s famous sea monster), City Hall, cod, lobster, Our Lady of Good Voyage, Fishermen’s statue, dory, Babson boulders, seagull, waterbirds, and a PIPING PLOVER dashing across the beach with Thacher Island in the background.
The Gloucester 400 + quatercentenary plate and mug can only be purchased at Alexandra’s Bread, located at 265 Main Street.
Many thanks to Mary for understanding the beauty and purpose in protecting threatened and endangered species such as our valiant little Plovers.
Update to the post – That is the Schooner Lannon!! Harold A. Burnham (fabulous builder of the Lannon) shares the following “t was my intent from the start for the Lannon to represent Gloucesters storied past and twenty six years later it is an amazing honor to see her so promanently placed on such an important piece of work.
