Catalogue Note: This is a previously unrecorded form for both patterns. The Transferware Collectors Club Database notes the following regarding the Passaic River design: "Belleville has been called the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in America, since the first steam engine operated in this country was used to pump out the flooded Schuyler copper mines here in 1755. Nicholas Roosevelt, great uncle to Theodore Roosevelt, later ran a concern that manufactured modern steam engines in Belleville. Working for Robert Fulton and Robert Livingston, in 1811 Roosevelt built the steamboat New Orleans in Pittsburgh, which became the first steam powered vessel to navigate the Ohio River to the Mississippi and thence down to its namesake city."
