Copeland/Spode - Eden/Bridal Veil

The charming Eden features two pheasants on a branch, and has the Reg No 615911 dating it to 1913+. Two distinct pattern numbers were used which can help in dating items:

S1393 - c. 1913-36
S2655 - c. 1936-52

The S1393 pattern number is sometimes incorporated into the Spode backstamp, with or without the word EDEN. In the early years two distinct glaze colours were used: CROWN (white background) and IMPERIAL (off-white background).

The S2655 number is usually handpainted in small red or green letters. After 1952 the shape and design of items changed slightly and the backstamp becomes simply SPODE in black gothic letters, with the word ENGLAND below.

Eden was discontinued around 1972 and is quite a hard pattern to find. The almost identical Bridal Veil is a variant in different colours:

 

Eden

 

Bridal Veil

As not all items are marked with pattern names, Eden can be recognised by the red and yellow colouring on the leaves of the tree - items also have a green rim, whereas Bridal Veil has an ochre rim.
