Spode Blue Italian was made possible by Josiah Spode’sperfection of blue under-glaze printing in 1784.This collection is a tapestryof blue scene’s and figure’s. Today we have an extensive collection ofmicrowave and dishwasher safe dinnerware, giftware and accessories. This 12piece set contains 4 each Dinner Plate, Salad Plate and Mug. The Dinner andSalad Plates are manufactured from the UK, the mugs from China. Introduced in 1816, Spode’s Blue Italian dinnerware is a classic that hasremained popular among collectors and diners throughout the centuries. This12-piece set is ideal for daily dining that are all dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Referred to as “transferware,” the elaborate pattern is engraved by handonto copper plates and then transferred onto the ceramic by skilled artisansusing blue underglaze–a process that was perfected back in 1784 but is stillcarried out today at the original Spode factory in England. Influenced by aink and wash drawing from the 17th century, Blue Italian pictures Roman ruinswithin a pastoral setting in the center of the dinner and salad plates andaround the exterior of the mugs. A fantastic floral border on the rims of thegently scalloped plates and the handles of the mugs shows influences fromearly Chinese porcelain designs. Made of high-quality glazed earthenware, thisplace setting is delicate in appearance but has been updated to meet today’sstandards of durability. A varied assortment of dinnerware and home décoritems in the Blue Italian pattern is also available to complete a collection.
