One spice jar, 4½" high and 2½" in diameter
One spice jar, 4½" high and 2½" in diameter. The fox faces the tortoise and hare, perhaps at the start of their race. The design is in fact identical with that on the cup, but some of the space between the fox and the other pair is removed on the smaller jar. The jar is marked "Parsley" at its top, and the floral pattern of the top of the cylinder is repeated on the separate lid. $26 from Nona Thompson, Stewartstown, PA, through Ebay, Feb.,' 00.
Apparently Spode has begun a nostalgia replica series recently. It surprises me how suddenly these related items have sprung up on Ebay. One of the blue plates is still in its styrofoam casing. I think I lost track, in the midst of my summer travels, on whether I had already landed a blue plate. I am not really seeking a full service for eight! For me the most appealing piece visually is the platter. The dog clutches his bone but is right down at water level and ready to pounce!
