“Lange Lijsen” Spode Plate

“Lange Lijsen” Spode Plate


Transferware plate by Spode, circa 1825.


This pattern is also known as “Long Eliza” and “Jumping Boy”. The pattern name is also sometimes referred to a “Lanje Lijsen” in some of the references. Depending on the reference, “Lange Lijsen” can be translated “Slender Lady” or “Pretty Damsel” in Dutch.


Dimensions: Approximately 9⅞” diameter.



The border is decorated with panels of women and trees separated by geometric designs.


The center is decorated with a scene of a tall woman and a child in a garden with a bridge in the background. The scene is surrounded by a printed gadroon border.


The reverse has an impressed “Spode” and two impressed clay workman’s marks and a printed “Spode” and a printed decorator workman’s mark.


This style of impressed marked was used from 1815 to 1833, while this style of printed mark was used from 1810 to 1833.


The design appears to be taken directly from a Kangxi Chinese export porcelain example illustrated in “CHINOISERIE, Printed British Ceramics in the Chinese Style 1750 - 1900” by Halliday and Zeller at page 395.
