Where the family is all around, the home is decked out in lovely Christmas decorations, and aromas from the family dinner are wafting through the air. It's this moment where Spode Christmas china makes its lasting impression.

Spode Christmas china is the premier earthenware for the holidays. It's been an American tradition since 1938, when Spode first launched its now famous pattern on the U.S. market. Since then, it's grown to be a staple on family tables around the world, and for good reason. It just exudes holiday cheer.

Most pieces of Spode Christmas china feature a beautifully decorated Christmas tree as its focal point. Depending on the piece, other holiday symbols are mixed in too, from boughs of holly and red and green ribbons to candy cane stripes and ornately scripted holiday sayings. They just feel like Christmas - like the tableware that was just meant to help you celebrate one of the biggest days of the year.
