BLUE/MAUVE SHABBY CHIC SERVING DISH FROM SPODE, MADE IN ENGLAND

This elegant serving platter was made near Stoke-on-Trent by Spode - established in 1789 - who produced a great variety of earthenware of beautiful quality.

Colour washed in a fashionable shade of Marie Antoinette blue, simplicity is the key design feature of this fabulous platter.

Opal shaped, it is ideal for serving all manner of foodstuffs - from sandwiches or cakes at a tea party, or slightly larger items at a dinner party.

It duck egg blue colouring also makes a lovely backdrop for displaying fruit on.

The platter's simple and vintage appeal makes it fabulous to display in an armoire or kitchen dresser.

The underneath of the platter features the marks "SPODE'S", "English Lavender" and "England", confirming it is a Spode item.
