This is a very good quality porcelain coffee can by Spode of Staffordshire, England, made during the very early 19th century, George 111rd period, circa 1805.
The coffee can is nominally parallel, with a loop handle having one lower kink, characteristic of the Spode handle. It has a fairly deep foot recess with obtuse corners and is fully marked to the base.
The pattern is one of Spode's hand painted floral leaf designs, like an arrow fletching feathers, in magenta/puce, burnt orange and gold, all around the upper border, all between gold gilt rings with a further gold gilt ring just above the base, with further hand gilding to the outer handle. The base is nicely hand painted with the lower case "spode" with the pattern number 1928 below.
We date this piece to the late George third period of the early 19th century, circa 1810.

Wear consistent with age and use. This Coffee can looks virtually unused, probably kept in a cabinet with excellent gilding condition. One tiny ( very short~ 3mm) rim hairline near handle Otherwise very good. Please see images.
