Buttercup by Spode

The earliest record of Buttercup is a hand-painted on bone china in 1885. It is thought to have been designed by Francis Xavier Abrahams, who worked at Copelands between 1882 and 1902 and was for a short time Art Director. Following the engraving of a copper plate for printing, Buttercup appeared in its popular form on earthenware and on the Chelsea Wicker shape. A different version known as Mandalay was produced in reds and browns, while Primose featured blues. The pattern was also produced using the name Wicker Dell from 1962 to 1964.

Please Note: Not all Spode is safe for use in the microwave. Patterns with gold or platinum decorations around the rim should not be used in your microwave because microwaves can not pass through metal. If in doubt, use this simple test: Is this Utensil Safe for the Microwave?

I am thrilled! There are many more recipes then I expected. I am very excited since my husband often works late and I end up with sandwiches rather then making myself something to eat.. —Barbara Andersen, New York
