This beautiful antique Copeland Spode charger is ready to grace your table when guests come calling. Decorated with molded flowers and leaves, blue underglaze transfers of roses and a Greek key border, and overglaze hand painted flowers, leaves, and edge. Easy elegance that will mix with lots of what you've already got, and especially nice for lovers of blue & white. The molded flowers are a lovely, tasteful layer of embellishment, the subtle interplay of light and shadow much more noticeable in person than in the photographs - this piece whispers rather than shouts.
A versatile serving piece, these big round platters are sometimes referred to as Chop Plates, but are endlessly useful for any number of serving tasks… your prettiest cookies, a grilled veggie platter, or even something that has a little juice since there is a center well and rim.
CONDITION is great with some expected wear to the iron red overglaze painted edge and a few glaze pops original to the manufacturing - only mentioned for accuracy, please look at the photographs. This charger dates to sometime between 1891 and the first decade or so of the 20th C, and in addition to the printed Copeland Spode mark and the impressed Copeland mark, it also bears the mark of the retailer W H Plummer & Co. - New York. Measures an ample 12 7/8" in diameter.
So make up your guest list and get those invitations out... or simply surprise the family with some beautifully plated treats. This elegant serving piece is destined to become one of your favorites. Enjoy!
