Length: 5:59

Built in 1814, the Stuart house is the oldest home in Carmi, Illinois and has hosted many famous people, including Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln. The complete Moss Rose china set that can be seen in the house was donated by Senator James Robinson’s granddaughter and is now displayed as it would have been over a hundred years ago. The china, which can be found throughout the house, is beautifully decorated and in excellent condition. A Victorian style of china, Moss Rose china was made from 1808 to 1900 and is usually adorned with pink and green flowers, as well as a robin’s nest, and is often trimmed in blue or gold.
