Continuously produced in England since 1816, the Blue Italian pattern from Spode will easily find a home on a casual or more formal table. Utilizing an underglaze printing process created by Josiah Spode and still employed today, varying shades of blue and white make up the lovely design, adding a 3-dimensional depth to each piece.
Measuring 5-1/2 inches wide and 10 inches from handle to spout, this Blue Italian 8-cup teapot stands 6 inches high and is the perfect complement to the matching teacup, creamer, and milk jug. Based upon a late 17th Century drawing, the central design depicting classic Italian ruins in a pastoral setting decorates the rounded bowl. An 18th Century Chinese-inspired floral motif adorns the handle of this rectangular vessel as well as the lid and small finial. Crafted from Spode's high-quality earthenware, known as Imperialware, this teapot can safely be placed in the microwave or dishwasher. --Lea Werbel
