Spode began to produce smaller bat printed landscapes which enabled depiction of greater detail as seen in these bone china plates.  The pattern is reference number P270 in Spode Transfer-Printed Ware 1784-1833 by D. Drakard and P. Holdway. The pattern was also printed in gold - see an example below.
