Set of 11 Early Spode Ironstone Imari Dessert Dishes Made circa 1815$1,650.00
A set of 11 Imari style ironstone dessert dishes, made by Spode circa 1815.
Josiah Spode II began producing stone china in 1813 as an alternative to porcelain.

So popular was this new medium that Queen Charlotte purchased her own stone china service from Spode’s Portugal Street showroom. These dessert dishes are early examples of Spode Stone China; in 1822 the company introduced an improved body marketed as “New Stone,” and thereafter items were branded as such.
Dishes are marked with pattern number 2283 in iron red and feature the printed Spode Stone China mark in underglaze blue.
