This stunning late Victorian ceramic autumn leaf dish was made in 1892 by the famous Staffordshire pottery works of William Copeland (Spode). In the style of a large autumn coloured leaf, this dish beautifully crafted and hand-painted in an array of warm colours from pink, yellow, orange through to brown.
In excellent condition with no cracks or chips, just a minor restoration to the underside of the tip of the leaf. Hardly noticeable and looks like it was done many years ago. There some scratches to the hand-painted surface to expected of a dish that is nearly 120 years old. Clearly marked with an incised Copeland stamp and the incised number 92 denoting the year of production. This is an unusual and very rare large dish measuring approximately 40cm long by 10.5cm at the widest point and is a beautiful antique that would look amazing on display!
