The Bridge design was copied from the Chinese and introduced about 1808. This is the slightly later Bridge II version of the design. Much later in 1884 it was re-engraved and called New Bridge or Queen Charlotte pattern.
There are signs of wear to this plate, the glaze is finely crazed and a couple of minor hairlines to the rim. The print is also slightly flown. Overall good condition.
No maker's backstamp, but attributed to Spode.
Provenance: The personal collection of Gresham Copeland, passing by descent to his son Robert Copeland. Collection identification label on back AGC 183 and 15 March 1938.
