Significance

In the early years following the American Revolution there was a demand for Chinese trade to supply manufactured products such as porcelain, silk and tea, which were not yet available in America. Richard Dale was first officer onboard the ALLIANCE when it pioneered the new route to Canton that brought American vessels past the new colony in New South Wales. On a later voyage he commissioned a porcelain dinner service to bring back to America. By the 1830s trade routes from America to China were well established and as a result, many wealthy families and merchants of the time possessed numerous Chinese manufactured items in their homes. Chinese fabric, fans were adopted in the fashion trends of the time and tea was an integral part of social entertaining.
