This charming ornament is part of Spode's legendary Christmas Tree line which has been in production for over 65 years. It is collected and cherished in households throughout the world. Beautifully detailed, this ornament will be a delightful addition to any collection!
In 1938, Harold Holdaway, a young designer in Spode's England office, was asked to design a Christmas pattern for the American market. He was faced with a dilemma...he had never seen a decorated Christmas tree! In his first sketch the presents were suspended from the branches. "Wouldn't that cause them to droop?" he wondered. He amended his sketches when told the American tradition was to place gifts under the tree. Holdaway used another Christmas icon in a most delightful way, adorning the top of the tree with jolly St. Nick.
