One of these was with the firm of Angus Watson in 1937.They were the proprietors of 'Skipper Sardines' and offered Spode sandwich dishes as a premium gift in connection with a sales promotion of their famous tinned fish.The Great Temple of Diana The Statue of Jupiter Olympus (see image)The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus The Colossus of Rhodes The Pyramids of Egypt The Walls and Hanging Gardens of Babylon The Pharos of Alexandria The pattern was produced with an assortment of borders and on different shapes The plain prints (patterns in one colour) did not have pattern numbers.
An example of this type of pattern is Tumbledown Dick, produced in several versions, (in Fig 2) with Marble sheet. The transfer paper was removed, either by peeling or washing off, leaving the printed outline behind. Then the Marble sheet pattern, which was to act as the 'background', was printed in the required colour and transferred over the whole surface.The background to the pattern was Shagreen also known as Broth. The pattern was introduced in about 1838 and the Copeland & Garrett mark on this piece used until 1847. Other well-known printed designs such as Italian, Tower and Lange Lijsen first introduced in the early 1800s have their own sheet patterns for handles and knobs which in turn were later used for designs in their own right.In a catalogue of 1911 it is illustrated and described as a Chintz pattern along with another chintz style pattern.
