That Image was taken from Google.

Though I could have taken it my self because I have some of this collection. Yes it’s true after going through some of the plastic bins in the basement my father is giving me my grandmothers china and it just so happens that some of the china is non other than Spode china and is the Rose Briar collection. I had to do some googling of this kind to see why it would be expensive.

This Rose Briar pattern was manufactured for 39 years by the Spode China company ,based in England . The discontinued Spode Rose Briar pattern is a pattern that will catch anyones eye as soon as they walk in to the room. The Rose Briar pattern is an elegant & simple looking pattern with eye catching colors even though they are quite muted, the border of roses on the pattern is done in beautiful & accurate colors & look like they are real roses if they where not on this beautiful Rose Briar pattern.

The weave on the Rose Briar pattern is called a basket weave & adds to the elegant simplicty of the pattern, giving it an exquisite design without making it very flashy. The Rose Briar pattern is quite an old pattern & was manufactured a total of thirty nine years making it quite an obviously popular pattern at the time. The Rose Briar patterns design is more of a typical Spode design of that era as can be seen from other Spode patterns from then like the Spode Chelsea Garden pattern, Spode started to change their pattern to a more modern look in the late 1980s as can be see from a pattern like Spode Stafford Flowers.

It really is very beautiful in person to see. Also some of the prices that they go for is pretty amazing as well. I don’t have a ton of it but I do have some great pieces. It’s just to bad that my grandmother had mental issues and smashed a bunch of it as well some beautiful Royal Doulton Figurines. But anyways it’s cool to see that I have a bunch of this pretty china ware. It will be nice to have them out so they can be used ands displayed. Also neat that this has history.
