Spode “Ship Pattern” #3067 Ironstone Platter


Ironstone printed platter with printed design and inpainting. c. 1820.


Dimensions: Approximately 12½” x 9”.



The border of the plate is decorated with colorful flowers against a gray ground, with a few sprays flowing beyond. This border pattern, called "Ship Border, became very popular and was often used by Spode with other central designs,


 The central scene is surrounded by a Meissen-style gold and puce border.


The foreground image is of a mother and child next to a large building.


In the background is a shoreline with buildings, and beyond there is a European sailing ship. The impression is of a harbor which the ship may either be approaching or leaving.


The pattern copies 18th Century Chinese export designs.


The reverse bears a printed Spode “Stone China” mark and a painted pattern number.
