Set Ten Hand-Painted Plates Spode Chrysanthemum Swirl Pattern England Circa 1810$3,630.00
WHY WE LOVE IT: A Great Pattern! And a Great Color Combination of Green and Gold! We are pleased to offer this fabulous set of 10 “Green Chrysanthemum Swirl” pattern dishes made by Spode in the early 19th century (circa 1810). This English pattern was inspired by similar Chinese patterns of the 18th century. The crisp white of the Spode pearled creamware allows the green and gold chrysanthemum design to stand out. In Chinese lore, chrysanthemums represent a happy life. Having chrysanthemums was also thought to prolong life. Therefore, these dishes have a positive motif of happiness and well-being.
Dimensions: diameter 8.75″
Condition: Very good. Images of the underside of various plates in the group show the impressed “Spode” mark and style #1472 in gold lettering. In addition, one of the dishes has a fine short line on the back which does not go through to the front (see image #7). If one looks closely at the images, several dishes show some crazing on the back, which is not visible on the front of any of the dishes. Crazing results from fine separations between the glaze and the underlying earthenware body when the dishes were originally fired in the kiln.
Blue and White and Gold Dish Made in England by Spode, Circa 1820$420.00
This exquisite Regency period dish is painted in underglaze deep blue cobalt. Because the porcelain is translucent the intensity of the blue varies in the light. The blue ground is decorated with golden leaves and white peonies and daisies. The design is so well done that we can almost feel the texture of white flowers. The vibrant cobalt blue and the lavish gilt are as stunning today as they were 200 years ago.
Dimensions: diameter 8.25″ x 1.5″ height

This pair of wine coolers is decorated in the wonderful “Dollar” pattern. It was made by Spode in England circa 1820.
