Extremely fine Copeland Ironstone Dinner Service 1870-80

SOLD

This is a rather amazing dinner service by Copeland Spode . It is a very fine Ironstone , so very durable . Hand decorated in this amazing imari pattern with an urn of flowers , richly decorated in gold. This was and still is an extremely high quality service . Commissioned I am sure as it would have cost a fortune to make and purchase .

Obviously highly prized by its owners as I doubt it was actually used .Most likely ordered as plates and platters , as there are no tureens maybe they used gilded silver pieces
