What a pretty set! The embossed white flowers stand proud of the lavender blue background. The can's handle has that distinctive Spode kink to it. Each piece is marked 2036 in red, and the saucer is also marked SPODE in red.
In her book, "Spode-Copeland-Spode", Vega Wilkinson dates this pattern 1814. The pattern may be seen on the wonderful spodeceramics website. The bone china teapot shown there is from The Potteries Museum in Stoke-on-Trent.
This can is also shown in Berthoud's "A Compendium of British Cups", plate 332.
Both coffee can and saucer are in excellent condition, with only slight wear to the gilding of the rims. No chips, no cracks, no repairs, no crazing. Each piece rings like a bell when tapped.
