This is a rare Creamware pottery Chestnut Basket made by the SPODE factory, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England, in the late Georgian, Regency period of the early 19th century, circa 1825.
This pierced Chestnut Basket is made of cream-ware which is a type of earthenware pottery.
The pattern is the transfer printed and hand enamelled Ship Border pattern, number 3184. A similar basket in this pattern is documented and illustrated in Stephen Smith's book, Spode and Copeland, page 32.
This piece is fully marked to the base having a lower case "Spode" printed mark, together with the pattern number 3184 and an impressed upper case "Spode" mark with an S next to it.
Overall a beautiful rare piece of Spode.
