Here is an antique plate with delicate hand-painted decoration of trailing and scrolling flowers in blue, and it’s a wonderful design. To quote the Spode History blog: “The royal connection with Spode began in 1806 when the company was awarded its first Royal Warrant by HRH the Prince of Wales, later HM King George IV. He was supplied with beautiful pots both as prince (surface patterns, shapes and even a backstamp incorporating the Prince of Wales feathers was designed) and as king. As well as beautiful patterns on bone china, 'architectural' ceramics for Brighton Royal Pavilion were also specially produced for this royal client.” This particular plate bears the rare “backstamp” (factory mark) that was probably devised to commemorate the 1806 visit of the Prince of Wales to the Spode factory. Unfortunately, one large chunk of the rim has been reglued in place (as shown) and there’s a hairline too. It is eight and a half inches in diameter and, as you can see in the photos, it does display extremely well despite its faults.
