Dazzling opulence describes a formal table set with Spode's Sheffield pattern. Crafted in ornate Old-World style reminiscent of a queen's dining décor or castle banquet hall, the collection features translucent fine bone china with gleaming white centers bordered by lavishly applied 22-carat-gold accent work. Wide trim, raised leaf sprigs, and shimmering flower motifs make a grand initial impact, while scalloped rims, wavy contours, and realistic leaf and acorn knobs offer a refined, feminine finish.
Made in England and perfected by Josiah Spode himself in the 1700s, Sheffield is the more streamlined cousin to the intricate Stafford White pattern and complements formal dining with luxurious yet smartly tailored style. Though it should not be place in the microwave because of the gold detailing, it does go safely into the dishwasher on low heat.
Spode Sheffield (R3359) was produced from 1962 to 2009.
This range is now discontinued.
