Spode - 2nd Time Around Tuesday

This summer I found these Spode plates at an estate sale. On the back of the plates it says they're from "The Spode Blue Room Collection 'British Flowers - Rosa' c. 1831. I got them for $3 each which I didn't think was such a bad price. I have Blue Willow pattern dishes and several other blue and white pieces so these pieces went along nicely with that collection.

Join the rest of the bloggers in 2nd Time Around Tuesday hosted by Diane at A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words. You'll see lots of 2nd hand treasures over there.

I don't know much, but I know the name "Spode," and I know $3 is a super deal.

That is a STEAL at $3 each! And they are just beautiful. I like the unique shape of them. Not the typical 'round'. I shared plates today too! Must be a theme going round bc I've noticed several posts on dishes today.

Love the Spode. I recently acquired two Spode serving bowls...so pretty.
And love the 'settle' DH made. What a great addition to the garden.
Happy Tues, Candy
