This round earthenware dinner plate, printed in underglaze blue, illustrates Spode's  Rome (or Tiber) pattern, with a diminutive border that gently frames the center design.  This pattern was inspired by two views taken from engravings found in Views of Rome and its Vicinity published by J. Merigot and R. Edwards, London, 1796-98.  The two related source prints are included below.  Note that Trajans' Column was taken out of context and inserted into the center of the  view depicting the Castle and Bridge of St. Angelo.  This plate has a commercial connection;  transfer-printed on the back is the name  "Harrison's New Hummuns Coffee House," shown below.  Click on the images to enlarge.
