A fine pair of Spode Violet Pot Pourri baskets and covers c.1815-20. Of oval shape with rope-twist handles and finials, the domed covers pierced, painted with pattern 1166. One of the most sumptuous designs produced by Spode. Pattern 1166 was first recorded in about 1808. The pattern is ground layed in cobalt blue, hand painted and gilded on Spode's pure white bone china. It is gilded and painted entirely by hand. The combination of cobalt blue and gold is one of the most expensive in ceramic decoration as it is produced with 2 of the most expensive raw materials. This extravagance, coupled with these gorgeous flowers, makes this design one of the most magnificent to come out of the Spode factory.
