The three volume work Landscape and Portrait Illustrations to the Life and Works of Lord Byron was issued in 1832-1834 and published by John Murray, who also published Byron's works. The engravings were by Edward and William Finden and based on paintings by well known contemporary artists such as Clarkson, Stanfield, Fielding and Turner. It was a work that epitomised the Grand Tour and illustrated places in Europe associated with the famous poet. The engravers at Spode were quick to seize upon these inspired engravings and the Byron Views series was one of the first designs introduced by Copeland & Garrett, as they succeeded the Spode family in 1833. The scenes are finely engraved and printed and have a romanticism that catches the spirit of the age and the intrinsic charm of each scene.
This rectangular dish features Patras. It is beautifully patterned inside with vignettes of pattern around the outside. A little minor surface scratching inside to the base otherwise excellent condition.
Blue printed backstamp: Copeland & Garrett Late Spode Patras and impressed Copeland & Garret Late Spode.
