This early Spode blue and white 'Rome' or 'Tiber' pattern 9-3/4" Soup Plate shows a "mash-up" of several views of Rome from the Tiber. It includes Castello St. Angelo, Trajan's Column and St. Peter's. Trajan's Column, shown between the castle and the church, is not actually situated there.

The plate is in excellent condition, with no chips, no crazing and no repairs. There are a few very light utensil marks. It rings when tapped.
There are 3 stilt marks, made during the firing process.

The mark shown is listed as 16b in Leonard Whiter's book "Spode". He says "Examples are rare." In the book "Spode's Willow Pattern", we read:
"A mark rarely seen except on the blue-printed patterns of Buffalo, Rome, and Filigree. Introduced about 1805, it possibly remained in use for ten years." Therefore, we can date this soup plate 1811-1815.

Other marks on the plate include an impressed "8", and a workman's mark in blue.

Note: Also available in my shop: 3 matching soups (which do not ring) and one matching dinner plate.
