Spode Saucer, c.1830 and Platinum Reflect Teacup

£200.00 GBP

Produced by Spode circa 1830, this ‘Broseley’ or ‘Pagoda’ pattern was a forerunner to their famous ‘Willow’ design. In this period, Spode started to use transfer prints on a large scale and this saucer highlights the sublime quality of their earliest prints. The image would have been engraved into a copper plate, which could make approximately 40,000 prints, and layered with sticky paint in a hand press on thin paper. These were then cut by hand and placed on the saucers to create the pattern. Each intricate detail of this Chinese-inspired design, from the pagodas to the bridges, is celebrated fully in the reflection of our platinum Reflect teacups.

 

Antique British porcelain is never perfect. During the 1800s, kilns were fired on coal resulting in occasional firing specks, whilst makers were known for their experimentation that sometimes resulted in technically imperfect results. As a result, each saucer is truly unique and a small piece of history that has survived centuries to find its new home with you. Our pricing reflects the condition and rarity of each piece, and we ask that you embrace the small imperfections that reflect the rich past of British porcelain. This piece has a small amount of noticeable wear and imperfections due to its age, and is a more common piece to have survived.

 

Each teacup and saucer set comes with a handwritten gift card detailing the history of the antique saucer.

Collection Story

The Reflect collection started with our teacup, which brings life back to antique saucers missing their other halves by using platinum and gold gilding to create highly reflective cups. The mirrored cups reflect the patterned saucers, giving them a new lease of life and a place in contemporary homes. 

Each cup is skilfully decorated and then paired with a saucer, all of which have been meticulously sourced from antique dealers across Britain. Reflect has now grown to include matching teapots, milk jugs, sugar bowls and coffee cups, to complete the collection.
