Spode's Willow Pattern

Early Spode Willow Pattern Soup Ladle c1810

Early blue and white ladles are a rarity; because of their purpose and the construction of the handle, few have survived. Soup ladles can reach up to 14 inches and their long elegant handles are particularly vulnerable. This superb Spode ladle in an early willow pattern has survived in remarkable condition considering it's about 200 years old. For more details see Premier Antiques
