 The pattern on this octagonal earthenware plate is printed underglaze in black and colored in underglaze with some over the glaze enameling.  It is pattern 243 from the Spode B Pattern Book, a late and rare design introduced c. 1829.  Two distinct versions of floral sprays were used for the pattern. The floral border usually appears on all pieces, sometimes with a string border added.  It is also known to appear on tea wares.   Other versions of the pattern with over the glaze enameling were also produced.
