The Spode Woodland pattern was first introduced in 1990, but is actually a combination of two older Spode designs. The rich brown floral border was borrowed from Spode's British Flowers pattern from the 1830's, and a Game Service pattern popular in the 1930's provided the inspiration for the hunting theme.
Whether your passion is hunting, fishing, riding or just the beauty of nature, Spode Woodland Pattern allows you to express it in your dining room. Hunting dogs, horses, game fish, birds, elk, rabbits, bears and deer---the great outdoors is the focus. Each piece is an individual work of art featuring Mother Nature's creatures in native habitats: three regal wood ducks in a green marsh, a snowshoe rabbit with her young in a frozen forest, a trusty Beagle nosing through the underbrush. The intricate floral border serves as a unifying element and keeps the collection from being too rustic. Spode Woodland is at home on any table.
Spode Woodland offers four plate sizes, two styles of mugs as well as a teacup and saucer, and a serving piece for every occasion. Appropriately, there is even a dog dish! Having four legs and a tail doesn't mean you can't appreciate quality china!
The Spode Delamere pattern features the same British Flower border and is an excellent mix and match choice with Spode Woodland.
