The Spode name of Temple in the early pattern books gave way to the use of  Two Temples I, Variation Temple that denotes the close resemblance to the pattern known as Two Temples II, Variation Broseley. The position of the willow tree and extra figure found in the garden in the former are the two elements that help differentiate one pattern from the other.  This example of  Temple is printed in blue underglaze on a bone china saucer from a New Oval service with bute-shape cups and saucers. It is taken from an original Chinese Export porcelain painted pattern named Chinese Shuttered Windows.
