Of manly things, such as hunting in the bush
I was very pleased to find a few more "Indian Sporting" plates from Spode - true early 19th Century items of unequalled quality with very manly hunting scenes.
To find out more about these interesting items and their history, you can watch the video now.
These items must be seen in the context of their time, when hunting bears and wolves in the bush was as desirable and cool as taking a cruise to Antarctica today... whatever we think now of the morally reprehensible circumstances, these are very beautiful plates!
You can find more early 19th Century blue and white transfer items in my shop - I will be on the look out all the time so check back if you are looking for something!
