The neo-classical “Greek” pattern, introduced in 1806, catered to the demand for classical subjects created by the Greek Revival style. The images were taken from “Outlines from the Figures and Compositions upon the Greek, Roman and Etruscan Vases of the late Sir William Hamilton; with engraved borders. Drawn and engraved by the late Mr. Kirk”.
This was probably the first multi scene pattern introduced at the Spode Factory. Mark: several piece and covers has a workman's mark of a circle and with an arrow. (Called WMT 1).
