Grasshopper with Trellis Diaper Border

Pattern Category: Other Floral and Botanical Patterns

Object Type: Dinner and Dessert Wares


  • Diameter: 9.6 inches


This version of the Grasshopper pattern has been printed in blue underglaze on an indented stone china soup dish.   It varies from Spode's first design in that the original border pattern has been changed to a Trellis Diaper design .  The Chinese porcelain hand-painted plate on which the central pattern was based is illustrated alongside a Spode plate with the Stone China mark as seen here in Robert Copeland, Spode's Willow Pattern and Other Designs After the Chinese, p. 143, Wellington House, London, 1999. The central pattern has a band of Catherine Wheel scrolls framing it.
