Christmas Tree pattern was designed in 1938 by Harold Holdway for Spode's North American counterpart Copeland and Thompson, Inc. Having never seen an actual Christmas tree, Mr. Holdway had to rely on his creative abilities. His original sketch called for the presents to hang on the tree's limbs like ornaments. Naturally, he was told the presents are placed under the tree, and he revised his sketch to reflect the change. He did manage to leave a unique touch however. Mr. Holdway did not realize that most Americans used either angels or stars as a tree topper. He placed atop his tree design a figure of Santa Claus. The unique pattern created reservation amongst Harold's North American colleagues, but the pattern was commissioned anyway. To date, it has been one of the most successful Christmas patterns in dinnerware history.
