Spode/Copeland Transfer-Printed Patterns Found at 20 Hudson's Bay Company Sites

by Lynne Sussman

Appendix A. Additional Patterns.

A number of Spode/Copeland patterns recently identified as occurring at Hudson's Bay Company sites have not been included in the body of the catalogue. They are discussed below.

Grapevine (post-1847—?). No known name. Excavated examples were made by W.T. Copeland. The pattern consists of a grapevine as a border design and a similar grapevine cluster as the centre design. There is no bead (narrow, secondary border) at the rim. Whereas the grape leaves and vine are realistic, the grapes could be mistaken for berries.

Honeycomb (1853—?). No known name. Registered 3 January 1853. See Figure 249.

Lanjelijsen (pre-1833—?). This well-known pattern was introduced during the Spode period. It is illustrated in Whiter's Spode (1970: 152).

Roman Beads (pre-1882—20th century). Illustrated in W.T. Copeland and Sons' 1882 catalogue. Twentieth-century marks occur on the copper plate. In 1895 the pattern was registered under the name "Exeter."

Rose Wreath (1847—post-1870). Registered 9 September 1847 by W.T. Copeland. It was given number D6361 about 1870. It is illustrated at the right of Figure 87.

Tulip (?—post-1872). A factory pattern book entry dated January 1872 notes that the pattern was "brought up," that is, taken to the London store. It is illustrated at the right in Figure 173.
