Here is an impressive piece for the collector’s shelf, at thirteen by nine inches, and easily displayed. It dates anywhere from 1800 to 1830, and is printed with the perennially popular Temple pattern, displaying Chinese pagodas in an oriental garden with willow trees. It is impressed Spode and also bears a printed mark plus numerals. The top surface is in excellent condition. The bottom rim has a few small chips and there is light staining and some crackling to the glaze, which is normal. This drainer was used as the insert lining for a meat platter so the juices would drip into a platter beneath. If this fails to fit your platter, I will accept it back and make a full refund if you pay return postage.
