Early American Homes was an underglaze transferware line produced for J.C. Penney in the early 1940s. Rhead noted working on different designs in late December 1940 and the final selection is given below. The 9" plate and platter are the easiest pieces to find. Teacups are somewhat rare. Each has a specific design and is marked in a similar manner as Americana with the subject name in the backstamp.

Platter Independence Hall
Teacup Paul Revere Home
Saucer Robert E. Lee Home
Fruit cup Thoms Jefferson Home
