The so-called dollar pattern is actually an English oriental-style design with a bold motif that happens to resemble a dollar sign. It was a popular pattern in the 19th century and is still popular today. Besides Spode, there were other factories making the pattern: Ridgway, Herculaneum, Coalport and probably a few more. The original version shows up on Chinese export wares. The antique porcelain creamer here doesn’t have a pattern number, but it is Spode’s pattern 715. (The Spode pattern 900 is the same design but in different colors.) It is in excellent condition, five and three-quarters inches long. Slight wear to the gilding and a couple of scratches from use.
