Description

This Spode plate displays the Craigie House in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow moved into this house as a boarder in 1837. Six years later, he married Frances (Fanny) Appleton. Her father had purchased Craigie House, and gave it to the couple as a wedding gift. Longfellow lived there until his death in 1882.
