Spode's Italian

spodes italian patternThe Italian pattern (aka Blue Italian) is the Spode factory’s most popular pattern, first produced in 1816 and in production until recent years. Featured here is the pattern on a 9.5 inch plate, and a photo of a portion of an engraved-copper plate used in the pattern’s production (not necessarily the engraving used to print this particular plate). More information on the Italian pattern in the TCC Database of Patterns and Sources (DB Pattern No. 12253). The copper plate image is one of thousands included in the TCC web site Image Gallery.
