I found this sweet English dish at a local estate sale and had to chuckle – who knew there was a special dish to cover up a cigarette burn in the table cloth?!
Small and dainty in size, it has a border of leaves and flowers along the border. In the center it reads “Who burnt the table-cloth?” in an italic font with pretty swirls on the letter W.
The bottom is marked “Copeland Spode’s Italian, England” and there’s a partial blind mark as well. Overall the piece has some lovely faint crazing in the glaze. The rim has a chip on the underside (see photo) that’s barely visible when the dish is set on a surface. There are two small dark pits in the glaze – please see photos.
Would make a great gift for a blue-and-white collector.
SIZE: a skosh over 5.75″ long x nearly 4″ wide
