Looking for the saucer to go with your tea cup? I have it! Copeland Spode Italian design in beautiful cobalt blue with the early blue stamped oval logo stating: “Copeland Spode’s Italian England.” The oblong logo and simple backstamp “England” dates this piece before 1890! A true antique and in wonderful condition.
Measures 5 ¾ inches across and has the cup indentation in the center. Very good condition with no chips cracks or repairs.
This design is called the “Tower” pattern ca.1814 and was developed from the printed illustration in Merigot’s” Views of Rome and its Vicinity ” published around 1796. Tower depicts the Bridge of Salaro near Porta Salara Rome. I’ve also learned that Copeland Company was located Stoke-On-Trent England and that Copeland was a former associate with Josiah Spode who perfected the process of blue underglaze printing on white earthenware – bringing about a transformation in the pottery industry.
