Awesome English Earthenware Blue & White Covered Dish / Tureen ~ “Italian” Pattern ~ W.T. COPELAND & Sons Ltd (Staffordshire, UK) - Early to mid 1900's

This beautiful covered dish is in an early Spode pattern. The main pattern on the lid and on the inside of the bowl depicts stone arch ruins, buildings and trees are in the distance. A river runs through the landscape with people and animals on the shore. A beautiful geometric and floral design boarders the scenic pattern. The outside of the bowl has a wide band with the geometric and floral designs. According to sources, the engravings for a pattern such as "Italian" would take an engraver at least two months to complete. Besides being made by the Welsh potters at Swansea, this pattern was also made by other Staffordshire makers. The source of this famous old Spode pattern is said to have derived from an unsigned grey pen and wash sketch which is now held in the Spode Museum Trust. It is said to have been copied from a Claude Lorraine pastoral landscape of 1638 which can be seen at Parham House in Sussex. The border design comes straight from a copy of a Chinese original. The wide variety of pieces printed with this pattern attest to its great popularity as does its long production period. The pattern originated in 1816 and has been in continuous production ever since that time. It is THE most popular pattern ever produced by Spode. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.

Backstamp: impressed crown & Copeland / Copeland Spode's Italian England in oval

Measures: 11 ¾" L x 3" H X 8 ¼" W
