Pair of Antique English Spode New Stone Plates

$585.00 for pair
  • England, circa 1825
  • Dimensions: 10 inches in diameter

For over 250 years, Spode Ironstone China has graced the tables of England, Europe as well as the United States. In approximately 1822, Spode introduced an adapted stone china called “New Stone”. This type of porcelain focused predominately more on occidental designs. It continued in production after 1833 when the business was bought by Copeland and Garrett.

In general, Stone China was more expensive than earthenware but less expensive than porcelain. It actually has characteristics of both. It was harder and more durable than earthenware and, although not generally translucent, it was fused like porcelain.

An elaborate pair of Antique English Spode “New Stone” Plates. Having a wonderful vibrant red as well as carious shades of blue and gilt being interspersed throughout, helps make the design quite special. Geometric shapes and various types of vases make up much of the design on these plates. These colors and design are set on a white background and a scalloped edge helps complete the look. There is an impressed mark “Spode New Stone” on the back of each plate. This is a delightful pair of Antique English Spode “New Stone” Plates.
