Harvard Wedgwood

Wedgwood produced a series of twelve plates for Harvard University in 1927, the first of many such sets produced by Wedgwood. The Library is pictured above. The plates features a transfer printed in blue on a 10.25 inch diameter plate. Each with a fruit and flower border . Approximately 5,000 sets were produced.

The set was later reproduced in 1941  in red as well as blue and again reissued in 1952. Though not the same, both of these sets were similar to the original 1927 set with some minor  changes.  Harvard Hall is pictured below in the red design:
