Franklin Tomb

Pattern Category: Places

Alternate Names: Franklin's Tomb

Object Type: Wares for Coffee and Tea


Phillips produced this scene as a fanciful depiction of a tomb upon which the name Franklin appears.  This appears to be the only American view produced by Phillips.  The structure of the tomb is unlike the tomb in La Fayette at Franklin's Tomb (see in this exhibit).  And neither bears any resemblence to the actual tomb of Benjamin Franklin.
