Vintage Copeland Spode Tea Caddy / Bud Vase Blue Transferware


Brand Copeland Spode

Here is a vintage Spode Copeland Fitzhugh tea caddy.  This does not have a lid and makes a perfect vase for a few flowers or fresh greenery. The history of the Fitzhugh pattern goes back to the early Spode period when the pattern was reproduced from a Chinese porcelain original in about 1800 probably as replacements for late 18th century imported services. Fitzhugh has been produced in different versions and in a variety of colors over the years. Apart from the familiar blue, the pattern has been reproduced in red, green, black and plum.

The name of the pattern comes from the family Fitz-Hugh, members of which were officials in the Honourable East India Company based in Canton, China in the late 18th century. Examples of the original Chinese porcelain service remain in the family. The central motif represents the Chinese symbol of Good Fortune.
