Spode Blue Italian was made possible by Josiah Spode's perfection of blue under-glaze printing in 1784.This collection is a tapestry of blue scene's and figure's. Today we have an extensive collection of microwave and dishwasher safe dinnerware, giftware and accessories. This pattern also includes several oven to table items. The 5 Piece Placesetting includes Dinner Plate, Salad Plate, Bread and ButterPlate, Teacup and Saucer.
Continuously produced in England since 1816, the Blue Italian pattern from Spode will easily find a home on a casual or more formal table. Utilizing an underglaze printing process created by Josiah Spode and still employed today, varying shades of blue and white make up the lovely design, adding a 3-dimensional depth to each piece.
This 5-piece dinnerware place setting with service for one beautifully complements the entire line of Blue Italian tableware pieces. Comprised of a 10-1/2-inch dinner plate, 7-1/2-inch salad plate, 6-1/4-inch bread and butter plate, 5-3/4-inch saucer, and 6-ounce teacup, this set makes a wonderful starter gift, wedding present, or addition to an established collection. Based upon a late 17th Century drawing, the central design depicts classic Italian ruins in a pastoral setting, while an 18th Century Chinese-inspired floral motif decorates the outer edge of each item in this 5-piece set. Crafted from Spode's high-quality earthenware, known as Imperialware, this dinnerware set can safely be placed in the microwave or dishwasher. --Lea Werbel
