There’s nothing like a Christmas story – and the story of Spode’s gorgeous Christmas Tree pattern began sixty-three years ago.
In 1938, Harold Holdway, a young designer in Spode’s England office, was
asked to design a new Christmas pattern, especially for the American
market. But Harold had never seen a Christmas ree, and was completely
unfamiliar with American traditions. In his first sketches, the presents
were actually suspended from the branches of the tree, until he was
told that the American tradition was to place gifts under
the tree, not in
Despite those few initial setbacks, Spode’s Christmas Tree pattern has
become an English Christmas tradition. Collectors all over the world
treasure Christmas Tree for its traditional style, reminiscent of a
bygone era. Since 1938, the pattern has remained the same – a true Spode
Classic. And it’s all thanks to Harold.
Christmas is all about tradition…and this year, it’s time to start a new
one. Make Spode Christmas Tree a part of your family’s Christmas…this
year, and for years to come.
