Since its introduction in 1938, Spode's Christmas Tree has been the most well known and widely collected holiday dinnerware pattern. Many cherished memories of holiday gatherings are focused around a meal or buffet table. Spode's Christmas Tree Tea Cup 7 ounce and Saucer 5- 1/2 inch is a charming addition to the well dressed holiday table.
A well-loved holiday tradition since 1938, Spode's Christmas Tree collection transforms a winter table into a forest of merrily decorated evergreens. This teacup and saucer set will keep conversations warm and cozy from Thanksgiving to the New Year. The 7-ounce teacup hosts a central Christmas tree on the exterior, piled with gifts and topped by Father Christmas, while mistletoe sprigs carry the festivities to the interior sides. The 5-1/2-inch saucer, sprinkled with holly and mistletoe, leaves plenty of room for a teaspoon or shortbread cookie. The pattern's signature green band circles the rims of both pieces for a well-tailored finish.
This lovely pair suits a quiet afternoon rest from the season's celebrations or a lively table of card playing and conversation. Made in England of Imperialware, Spode's high-quality earthenware, the set is safe for the dishwasher and microwave. If using the dishwasher, contact Spode for a list of recommended detergents. Both pieces are covered by a one-year warranty against defects. --Kara Karll
