Brown Transferware HUGE Canterbury Supper Set w/ Tureen and Four Covered Casseroles Spode Copeland Tower
Brand Spode Copeland
Spode Copeland Tower Supper Set in Brown
Rare, hard to find these supper sets, especially in this rusty brown color
This is a supper set, also called Canterbury sets. They are VERY hard to find. It is huge and very impressive. The Tower pattern was introduced by Spode in 1814, in a pale blue, and remained in production until about 2009 when the factory was closed. The scene on the pieces was derived from a printed illustration (shown last photo) in the book by Merigot 'Views of Rome and its Vicinity' published 1796-1798. It depicts the Bridge of Salaro, near Rome, Italy which dates back to the Roman period.
Overall this measures: 22"-24" round depending on how closely together you put the casseroles. The center tureen is 9" handle to handle x 10" with lid on. Each of the four crescent shaped, covered casserole dishes measure 14" x 8" x 5.5" high with lid on. This is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! You will get the WOW factor when people see it. I know, I have it in red myself and I had a blue one displayed at my physical shop for a couple of weeks and most people commented on how beautiful and impressive it was when they saw it. It has already sold.
No chips or cracks, there is some crazing
What a fantastic gift for the transferware collector in your life..or for you! ;-) It will be an impressive piece to use for the holidays as well!
