Here is a vintage plate by Spode Copeland in the Tower pattern. It is the older version dating to the 1930's. The design features a bridge, birds and Tower in the background. It has a pretty floral, Gadroon shaped border.
The Tower pattern is Iconic. It was first introduced by Spode in 1814 and was derived from a printed illustration in the book 'Views of Rome and its Vicinity' published around 1796-98. The Tower pattern depicts the Bridge of Salaro near Rome. The pattern has been in constant production from its introduction over 200 years ago!
