Pair of English Japan Pattern Spode Cans and Saucers, Ca. 1820
England Ca. 1820
Beautifully decorated in orange, blue and gold Imari or Japan colors. This pair of cans and saucers were undoubtedly produced by Spode in the early 19th Century . One saucer and one can is painted on the underside with the 1495 pattern number. There is a central basket of flowers by a fence, four bird on a branch vignettes and a gilt rim band.
Very good condition. There is some gold rubbing of the central design on the saucers and light rubbing of the edges of the rims. One can has a very short hair line. One saucer has a minute glaze chip.
Cans are 2 1/2" high and 2 1/16" diameter. The saucers are 1" deep and 5 3/8" diameter
