The ornament pays homage to a rare antique ceramic design -- Spatterware Christmas tree festoon pattern.
Spatterware is a brightly colored tableware made in England for export to the United States and other countries between 1810-1850. It reached its peak between 1830-1840.
Manufactured in England's famed Staffordshire district, the tableware was considered too gaudy for refined British tastes. It made its way to the Pennsylvania Dutch area where housewives purchased it as everyday tableware.
Spatterware has a finely sponged or dotted look. The spattering itself was applied in black, blue, brown, green, red, purple and yellow paint. There are over 60 known patterns of decoration, along with many variations, including birds, flowers, buildings, fruits and rainbow colors.
Patterns such as the Christmas Tree are rare. Can't you almost picture a German-speaking farm family enjoying a wee bit of whimsy with this Christmas china?
