A fine Spode New Stone china small covered double handled tureen with under plate painted in the Imari palette featuring floral themes in the Chinese style. Spode introduced New Stone c. 1820, so we feel safe dating this item to c. 1825. It is in very good condition with the only flaw being minor to moderate gilding loss around the edge of the plate. As a quality feature, you will note that the inside rim of the bowl is decorated. In general it is decorated with transfer and hand colored techniques.
The underside of the plate is impressed New Stone, and hand painted 3890, the pattern number.
