The series to which this platter belongs is also known as The States Series, as well as The States Border Series, due to the states' names in the border.  Lady Justice is at left, holding a portrait medallion of George Washington; Lady Liberty stands at right.  There is also a Masonic symbol.

Recent discoveries and the research efforts of author and lecturer Dick Henrywood indicate that the center views in this series are all British.  The source prints for these views have led to the specific identification of all the structures, save one.  This view is Doveridge Hall, Derbyshire, and appears in an article by Dick Henrywood in Ceramics in America 2011, entitled "The States Border Series by Ralph & James Clews", as figure 9 on p. 106.
