Meat Dish or Platter Antique Fragments at Limisso c1901 Maker: Spode  Pattern:Caramanian Series
Meat Dish or Platter Antique Fragments at Limisso c1901
This is a quirky rarity, Spode's own re-issue of their famous Caramanian pattern. The central scene is the familiar Antique Fragments at Limisso, but juxtaposed here with the border from Italian pattern. Presumably as this is on the rectangular shape of dish, rather than the oval used originally for Caramanian, there was no Caramanian border available of the right dimensions. Printed in the beautiful deep blue of the originals. Backstamp: Seal mark with Copeland late Spode and impressed date code for January 1901. In the printing there are some areas of surplus blue, where the transfer has been "made" to fit and some scuffs on the left side. The glaze is finely crazed, but despite this the platter shines almost like new. Excellent condition.
Dimensions: 37.5 x 29 cm / 14.75 x 11.25 ins

A magnificent large oval dish from Spode's famed Caramanian series. The central view of the Arch is surrounded by the intricate border of elephants, rhinos, horses and cattle.

Overall though a most impressive piece. Impressed Spode.

Bowl with Foot c1815
The scene inside is Citadel near Corinth and a made-up view on the outside of this rare piece in this classic Spode design. It is described in Drakard and Holdway as a circular footed comport or supper set centre piece, sometimes found with a cover, which the decorated interior of the bowl and rolled everted rim, render visually unecessary. A dragon head grab handle on each side. Impressed Spode in upper and lower case and blue printed O. There is some crazing to the glaze and a minor old chip under the foot. Gently proportioned this bowl displays beautifully.
