 very fine Spode bone china chocolate cup, cover and stand, vibrantly decorated in pattern 1494 which is an extremely ornate Imari design which covers every inch of the piece. This pattern was introduced c1809 and was probably a direct copy of a Chinese/Japanese Imari original. All hand-painted to most of its exterior & part of its interior as well together with loads of rich gilt work this was another elaborate & labour intensive design for Spode's wealthiest customers only. 

The saucer just marked with pattern 1494
