Q: I inherited this platter, which is marked "View of Newburgh, Jackson's Warranted." The circled eagle at the top of the plate says it was made for the 16th Regiment of the U.S. Infantry.

A: "Jackson's Warranted" was a mark used by Job and John Jackson at their pottery in Burslem, Staffordshire, England. The pottery was in business from 1831 to 1835. The design, "View of Newburgh," is one of several made for Jackson's American Scenery Series. It pictures the town of Newburgh, New York, which is on the west side of the Hudson River about 70 miles north of New York City. Your Newburgh platter is unique because it was made for the U.S. Infantry. Other Newburgh platters do not include the circled eagle at the top of yours. Value of your platter: about $650.
