Information
This is the eleventh of Spode's Christmas Collectors' plates.  It is the one for 1980 with its illustration inspired by the secular 'Boar's Head' carol.  It was designed by Spode's Gillian West.  The plate was a limited edition, never to be reproduced. 

Spode has been part of Stoke-on-Trent's industrial heritage for almost 250 years.   In the late 18th century,     Josiah Spode produced what has been described as the single most significant development in the history of his industry – the perfection of the formula for fine bone china.

The company has received many royal warrants, the latest of which was in 1971 as Manufacturers of China to HM Queen Elizabeth II.

In April 2009, the Stoke based Portmeirion Pottery Company bought Spode and Royal Worcester thus ensuring the continuance of these names.

This item comes complete with its information leaflet and has been stored in its original box which shows some age-related wear and tear.  The plate itself is in excellent vintage condition with its beautiful rich crimson (maroon) and gilded decoration.

Approximate dimensions: 8 inches | 200mm
