The scene on this plate caused this design to be called Italian Church for many years, until it was recognised as the church at Waterloo in Belgium, where the great battle was fought in 1815. The design was introduced about 1822 and used mainly on tea and breakfast sets. Production seems to have been limited as examples are rarely found today.
This small plate has been in two halves and restuck, with an associated hairline, all strengthened with tape stuck on the back. Also signs of wear, including tiny chip to rim. Battered, but not bowed perhaps.
Impressed backstamp Spode 22.
Provenance: The personal collection of Gresham Copeland, passing by descent to his son Robert Copeland. Collection identification label on back AGC 29 June 1943.
