Footnotes

  • Exhibited: Spode Bicentenary Exhibition, 1970, no.55. In 1901 the retailer Thomas Goode commissioned this special border pattern to be combined with the royal cipher of the reigning Monarch on porcelain to be used on board the royal yacht. This copy of the Royal Yacht service was apparently made for Charles Spencer-Churchill, 9th Duke of Marlborough (1871-1934) who had to settle for painted flowers in place of the King's cipher.
