Canadian topographical scenery was largely the domain of potters in Staffordshire, England. The earliest Canadian views, as in this example, was introduced by Enoch Wood & Sons about 1830 as part of a larger series of American views destined for the American market. Wood and Sons dominated the export market for tablewares of this kind during the 1820s and 1830s. This pottery is characterized by a deep, cobalt blue colour.
