Spode Christmas Tree Dessert TraySpode Christmas Tree Dessert TraySpode Christmas Tree Dessert Tray

For your consideration is a lovely 12" dessert tray in the Christmas Tree pattern by Spode.

"In 1938, Harold Holdway, a young designer in Spode's England office, was asked to design a Christmas pattern for the American market. He was faced with a dilemma..he had never seen a decorated Christmas tree! In his first sketch the presents were suspended from the branches. "Wouldn't that cause them to droop?" he wondered. He amended his sketches when told the American tradition was to place gifts under the tree. Holdway used another Christmas icon in a most delightful way, adoring the top of the tree with jolly St. Nick. We find his design both unique and charming, as do Spode Christmas Tree lovers the world over. "

Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. This beautiful tray has never been used.
