Early Blue and White - Spode's India Pattern


It's thought that the India pattern got its name from the East India Company which imported the Chinese originals from which Spode derived this type of floral design. A near copy from the K'ang Hsi period (1662-1772), here it's shown on a soup plate which is finely potted and has a lovely pale blue rippled glaze. For more details see Premier Antiques
