Indian Sporting - Spode

Spode originated the Indian Sporting Series c.1809.  The source of this multi-scene service is the publication of monthly issues by Edward Orme of Bond Street, London, entitled Oriental Field Sports, Wild Sports of the East written by Captain Thomas Williamson and illustrated by Samuel Howitt. 

The name of the scene was frequently printed on the back of the earthenware shapes; however Spode did not always faithfully follow the names originally assigned to the prints.  This series was primarily printed on dinner services.Where available, the source prints for these patterns are also included.
