Josiah Spode established Spode in 1770. In 1833, the firm was purchased by William Copeland and Thomas Garrett and the company name was changed to Copeland Spode. In 1847, Copeland became the sole owner and the mark changed again. W.T. Copeland & Sons continued until a 1976 merger when it became Royal Worcester Spode
Offered is this truly beautiful Late Spode “Red Roses” pattern covered vegetable bowl. It is over 10 inches in diameter and about 7 inches high. The intricate floral design consists of pink roses, contrasting green foliage, and blue, yellow and pink cosmos’ with a lacy background to add balance. It’s really a visual feast of color and complimenting figures. The bowl also has a gently lipped edge which captures the lid. It is marked on the underside of the lid , “Copeland , Late Spode, Garret” . The hand written numbers on the bowl and lid do match.
This console bowl is in excellent condition and free of flaws or condition problems but there is some table use wear and the rim is slightly rough. Our guess is that this wonderful vegetable bowl originates from the mid 1800's.
