Exquisite floral illustrations and gilt trim on white bone china make Spode’s Stafford Flowers teapot a necessity for a table transitioning from spring to summer.
In 1986, Spode introduced the aureate designs of Stafford Flowers, adding to the manufacturers already impressive selection of dinnerware and teatime accoutrements. After nearly three decades, Spode ceased production on the pattern. However, the assemblage of various blooms spotlighted on each piece—inspired by botanical prints from the 1790s—makes Stafford Flowers a timeless motif that can be displayed and utilized for afternoon tea evermore. The collection features glistening gold trim to frame the floral vignette on each bone china piece, such as the purple campanula, or bellflowers, and blue penstemon shown on each side of the short and stout teapot.
