  • Spode Greek Ware Platter with Well and Tree Made England, Circa 1820


    This exquisite Spode Greek ware platter with well and tree was made in England circa 1820. The platter displays a rare combination of colors: brown on iron red. The fabulous center scene is known as “Artemis Drawn by Griffin and Lynx”. This mythological scene shows Artemis, sister of Apollo, in a carriage being drawn by a Griffin and a Lynx. Based on ancient Greek and Roman art with classical figures the designs for this pattern were taken in 1804 from the collection of Sir William Hamilton. Printed on earthenware, Spode’s “Greek” pattern is transferware. Making it involved transferring an image from a copper engraving onto paper, and then from the paper onto the pearlware plate. According to Leonard Whiter’s “Spode a History of the Family, Factory, and Wares…” this was among the first multi-scene patterns introduced by Spode in 1806. The main source for the patterns is the work of Sir William Hamilton.

    The plate has wonderful provenance and motto.
    In the center of the plate is the coat of arms of the Family of Colegrave. Its motto: Fidei Constans [Steadfast in Honour]

William became the eventual heir to his uncle, John Manby.
    He then assumed the surname and arms of Colegrave by Royal Licence dated 16th February 1819.
