Set of 11 Hand Painted Floral W. T. Copeland Dessert Plates

A stunning set of eleven hand painted W. T. Copeland dessert plates circa 1880. The plates are decorated with a lobed edge featuring a wide cobalt border banded with gilt. Each plate exhibits a different large bouquet of flowers painted in outstanding detail.

The history of Spode China dates back to its foundation in March of 1733 by Josiah Spode. He perfected the blue and white willow transfer pattern technique to mimic Chinese porcelain, which brought great success to the factory. Along with his son, Josiah II, he also worked to produce a bone china, which they perfected in 1799. In 1784, William Copeland joined the firm and eventually became a partner along with his son, William Taylor Copeland, who became sole owner of the entire business in 1833. The company remained in the Copeland family until after 1966. They are famous for their celebrated transfer patterns and their beautiful white bone china. The mark shown was quite rare and only used for their best wares.

This incredible set is in pristine condition with little to no gilt or enamel wear, as if it were never used. Each plate is painted in striking artistic detail with a different bouquet of flowers, an elegant display for either a cabinet or wall.

Size: 9 3/8" Diameter.
