This listing is for a magnificent Copeland Spode round platter (or huge chop plate) in a pattern called “Irene.” It is decorated with dark pink flowers and garlands, with smaller yellow flowers, a blue border, and yellow trim around the scalloped rim. The platter measures 14-7/8 inches wide across the rim.
This piece is in good to very good condition. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing. There are visible utensil marks when the platter is held to the light at an angle; none of the utensil scratches mar the design or can be seen when the piece is sitting flat.
The platter has a clear green and pink mark on the foot for “Spode / Copeland’s China / England . / Spode’s Irene.” There is also a green hand-written decorator’s mark with various letters and numbers, as well as a few indented marks under the glaze. This piece is shown at the replacement’s site as Irene by Spode:
