A pair of exceptional Spode ice pails large, richly gilded and beautifully painted with pink roses and green leaves on a gold ground. Ice pails were commonly placed on the sideboard and used as fruit coolers, often for serving iced cream with the fruit (also called fruit coolers). They were the 18th and 19th century equivalent of today's ice cream maker.
"Winter's Eve" by Spode in red and white. I want to start collecting this pattern
Spode Blue Room Collection Plates - Patterns: Woodman 1815, Willow 1790, Rome 1811, Botanical 1830, Girl at the Well 1822, and Floral 1830, each 10.25", made in England
My favorite patterns are by Spode and Johnson Brother's. English transferware is absolutely my fave, but I have found some fun patterns at Sur la Table, Pier One and Ralph Lauren.
