Antique Copeland Spode Garrett cake plate with birds and butterflies
This is an antique Copeland & Garrett's bone china cake plate hand decorated with colourful bird, butterflies and flowers made around 1833 - 1847.

This design was influenced by the rococo revival that dominated fashions in the 1830s.

After her Majesty Queen Victoria's accession to the throne in 1837, she acquired these wares for both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

After 1847 the partnership between Spode and Garrett was dissolved which perfectly dates this china.

The rims and handles of the plate are raised and gilded. There is some loss of the gilding in the centre of the plate; otherwise there is no loss of gold. For nearly 200 year old china it is amazing how well it survived.

There is a small flat chip under the rim (as per photo), no cracks or repairs.

Each plate was hand-decorated with a different exotic birds and butterflies.
