Christmas Tree by Spode

Christmas Tree 5-Piece Place Setting by Spode Christmas Tree by Spode is one of the world's most recognizable and sought after holiday patterns. Featuring distinctive green trim and a classic decorated Christmas tree center, this pattern is sure to add joy and merriment to any holiday celebration. There have been many re-creations of Spode's joy-inspiring design, but there is only one Christmas Tree. The Christmas Tree pattern is made in England of strong, sturdy, premium quality earthenware called "Imperialware". It is exceptionally durable and beautifully decorative. The "easy care" characteristics of Imperialware (along with fun design!) make Spode's Christmas Tree ideal for entertaining during the busy holiday season.

The 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.
