A Spode Porcelain Platinum Lustre Bute Shaped Coffee Can c.1806. Pattern 822 first recorded in about 1806 is one of a range of amazing designs using platinum lustre which was possibly/probably invented at the Spode factory during the period Henry Daniel worked with Spode. 

Platinum lustre gave a mirror-like effect. Unlike silver lustre, platinum did not tarnish and was a little more hard wearing. Combined with gold and Spode's very white, translucent bone china the designs are very elegant, not at all gaudy, but with a feeling of extravagance.

This piece is unmarked.

Condition: Slight wear to the gilding and the lustre
