This Early Spode Coffee Can is in pristine condition! There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, no wear to the gilding, and no repairs. It rings like a bell when tapped.
This Kakiemon pattern, Spode's pattern #282 dates c. 1802 according to Vega Wilkinson's book on Spode. A picture of the pattern can be found on page 223, plate 225 of Leonard Whiter's book, "Spode". Other examples may be found by searching the web for this pattern.
The coffee can is about 2-1/2" high and 2-1/2" in diameter. It sports the distinctive "kicked handle" made by Spode.
Although the can has no marks on the base, I absolutely guarantee that it is pattern 282 and made by Spode in the early 19th century.
I have 2 of these coffee cans available. The price listed is for one.
