A vintage Copland Spode Pink Tower large 8 1/2 inch coffee pot British pink transferware. IF you are interested in all of them please contact me so I can change the shipping cost which includes insurance and tracking.
The tower pattern was first introduced c 1814 and is based on a printed illustration from a book by Merigot called "Views of Rome and its Vicinity" published c 1798 and depicts the Bridge of Salaro near Rome. The bridge which originally had a keep built on top of it survives although it is now underneath the main route leading out of Rome to the airport. In about 1894 the pattern was printed on Gadroon shape, based on designs of Georgian silver,[ https://spodehistory.blogspot.com/2011/02/tower-pa... ] The shipping stated is for one, if you plan on buying them all please contact me for an accurate shipping price which always includes insurance and tracking. Last photos show the massive collection I am helping a friend retire from.

From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it, art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever.A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
