Spode and Pattern 1166
It is possible that this pattern on Spode's bone china was made to imitate the Chinese and Japanese metal working technique known as cloisonné.
Many, many different items were made in this pattern to grace the homes of the wealthy. More can be seen in the book Spode by Leonard Whiter.
