Description:

A porcelain sauce tureen, cover and stand printed in blue with the Temple pattern with gilding.    The Spode name of Temple in the early pattern books gave way to the use of  Two Temples I, Variation Temple that denotes the close resemblance to the pattern known as Two Temples II, Variation Broseley. The position of the willow tree and extra figure found in the garden in the former are the two elements that help differentiate one pattern from the other.  This pattern was copied from a Chinese original painted porcelain design named Chinese Shuttered Windows.

 Reference print number P613-1, Spode Transfer Printed Ware 1784-1833 by David Drakard and Paul Holdway.
