In 1849, W T Copeland commissioned artist Edward Duncan to paint a series of sepia water colors to inspire a selection of tableware. In the following year Copeland Spode registered the new Rural Scenes pattern. It was produced subsequently without a border design and was called Duncan Scenes. Around 1878 the production was limited and printed in brown on cream bodied earthenware in Amien embossed shape with Gadroon rims. The Copeland family retained a dinner set in this pattern. This teapot is a wonderful example of the series.
This transfer pattern is a pinkish burgundy red transfer.
