National Mall Plate Set
Originally envisioned by Pierre Charles L’Enfant during the earliest days of the new republic and brought to fruition a century later by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and the McMillan Commission, this ribbon of urban greenery stretches from the U.S. Capitol to the Potomac River and includes many of the nation’s most-visited monuments, memorials, and museums. Each of these four plates highlights a different segment of the Mall: Lincoln Memorial, Tidal Basin, Museum Core, and Capitol Hill. In total, the plates represent an area spanning more than 1,000 acres. Among the 20,000 trees represented on the plates are the American elms, which line the Mall’s northern and southern edges, and the Japanese Yoshino cherry trees, which are portrayed in a delicate pink around the Tidal Basin. While each plate has its own distinct characteristics and landmarks, the series finds perfect union in the Mall’s elegant, continuous expanse of formal allées and promenades.Set of four 12" porcelain plates.
