This early Spode 'Rome' or 'Tiber' pattern 9-3/4" plate shows a "mash-up" of several views of Rome from the Tiber, including 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.
It's in excellent condition; no chips, no cracks no repairs, and, surprisingly, no utensil marks. There is fine crazing overall, most easily seen on the back. It does not ring when tapped.
The back is impressed 'Spode 8'. Spode introduced the pattern in 1811. This example is from that 1811-1820 period.
