Blue and White Footbath Made by Spode in the Lange Lijsen Pattern ca. 1820

About

We are pleased to offer this beautiful blue and white footbath made by Spode and decorated in their "Lange Lijsen" pattern. This popular pattern was created by Spode and made over two decades between 1810-1833. The pattern shows a blue and white garden scene in the traditional chinoiserie style with a young mother and her son. She is dressed in elegant robes and holds a bouquet of flowers; he is playing. In the background we see a willow tree and a bridge which are similar to the tree and bridge in Spode's "Willow Tree" Pattern first created in 1784. One of the charming details of this footbath is the handles which have a distinctive geometric herringbone design in contrast with the naturalistic scene on the body (see image #3). Today a footbath would be used as a planter, perfect for orchids! This footbath would also make a wonderful centerpiece on a table filled with flowers, or It might be set in a fireplace used to hold wood, or holly branches during Christmas. Dimensions: 18" x 12" x 8" tall Condition: Excellent Price: $5800 History of Spode: . Josiah Spode II was appointed “Potter to the Prince of Wales” when the Prince Regent visited the Spode factory in 1806. Spode is one of the greatest names of the Industrial Revolution. Josiah Spode I was born in 1733 and after several years working for other local potters, established his own company in 1776. Like his neighbor and friend Josiah Wedgwood, Spode concentrated on the production of ceramic wares of the finest quality in a variety of bodies. He is particularly recognized as having developed the technique for underglaze transfer printing on high quality earthenware circa 1784. One of the patterns Josiah Spode produced was the first printed “Willow” pattern 1784-90. Spode's son, Josiah Spode II continued the business for the next thirty years. In the early 19th century, considered by many to be the “Golden Age” of English ceramics the company grew to be a pre-eminent manufacturer of Fine ceramics of every kind
