According to Phelps Stokes,The Iconography of Manhattan Island, New York, 1998, p. 579, there are a few versions of this view, one drawn by A.J. Davis, lithographed by M. Williams; and a later view published in 1859 by E. Gambert & Co.. In the same publication, the Supplimentary List includes a Vue de New-York prise de Weahawk., by I Milbert, lithographed by Deroy and printed by deBove in 1828. It is possible that one of these was used for the decoration of this plate.
There is a Copeland and Garrett bone china tray of circa 1830 with a similar, but slightly different, view is in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art [joint bequest of Harriet K. and Grace Wilkes, 1922; 22.45.16]. It is painted with the scene taken from a print after a drawing by William Guy Wall. Mr. Wall was from Dublin and came to New York in 1818. By 1823 Wall's views of 'New York from Weehawk' and 'New York from Heights near Brooklyn' had been engraved by James Hill and were advertised for sale for $12. Mr. Wall's works were much admired by Staffordshire potters of the time and his works do appear on many pieces. See A.W. Coysh and Frank Stefano Jr., Collecting Ceramic Landscapes, London, 1981, pp. 49-51 for details of Mr. Will's successful views on blue & white Staffordshire.
