This is a vase made of Spode pottery with an Old Sheffield Plate rim. It was made by Sheffield firm Gainsford & Nicholson, around 1810. Many items in stone and jasper ware were sold by T Law & Co, one of the earliest manufacturers of Old Sheffield Plate. Classical designs were popular and during this period many took inspiration from English sculptor John Flaxman (1755-1826). Spode was an English company manufacturing pottery and porcelain, based in Stoke on Trent, from the late 1700s. The company was renowned for their fine bone china products.
