Vintage Spode fine bone dinnerware, “Bridal Rose” with gold trim, pattern # Y2788.
The pattern is a variation of the Billingsley Rose pattern on a Savoy shape plate, which is a raised cabbage leaf design. Billingsley Rose is a popular Spode pattern dating back to the 1920s, named after William Billingsley (1758-1828) born in Derby, England. Although Billingsley never worked for Spode, his flower designs have inspired English china painters for the last two centuries.
This collection has impressed date stamps ranging from 1947 to 1957.
The dinner plates are $795 for the set of 8.
The cream soup bowls and stands are $945 for the set of 7.
