The open vegetable dish from the Spode Christmas Tree Collection measures 11.5" across. The Spode Christmas Tree pattern was introduced in 1938 and was an immediate success. The popularity of the pattern has inspired many other companies to produce similar designs over the years. The Spode Christmas Tree is the original. In the last quarter of 1999 Spode's Christmas Tree was recorded as the largest selling casual dinnerware pattern in the USA. The Christmas Tree pattern has expanded over the years to include oven-to-tableware, glassware, giftware, and ornaments. Each year the line is expanded with new and invigorating selections invoking cherished memories of Christmas past and delicious anticipation of Christmas coming. Spode's Christmas Tree dinnerware is an invitation to a charming table that becomes a family tradition as your collection and memories grow.
