British designer Harold Holdway, in his world-famous 1938 Spode Christmas Tree design, adorned the top of the tree with jolly old St. Nick. We find his design both unique and charming, as do Spode Christmas Tree lovers the world over. The celebrated tree is found in three-dimensional form in these charming 4.75″ Christmas tree salt and pepper shakers. Two sets to win!

Oohhh…I collect salt and pepper shakers!
They are cute. Please pick me? heheheh…
I LOVE these!
Those are so pretty.
Not quite my thing (so if my name comes up, feel free to re-draw), but fascinating – not being a Spode collector, my first thought was ‘how could a British company have produced that? In 1938? It’s totally non-British, with candy canes and Santa Claus!’ (Candy canes have never been produced in Britain, and till a couple of decades ago we didn’t have Santa Claus either; presents were brought by the traditional Father Christmas, who wore not a hat and jacket but a hooded robe. In my 1960s London childhood we were only vaguely aware that Father Christmas didn’t visit America, where his duties were apparently delegated to some person with the odd name of Santa Claus. But you rarely, if ever, see or hear of Father Christmas here any more: Santa is everywhere.) But from this site on the history of Spode I learn that the Christmas Tree pattern was designed specifically for the US market, and was meant to depict an American tree! not a British one.
Great for the Christmas table
Very cute and I’d love to win a pair. Thank you for hosting a giveaway!
I actually already have these. I have an entire Spode Christmas China set my husband bought me. I use them every year. I’m really not a fan of the pattern – but he was – so if anything he enjoys having it around during Christmas.
Charming, I’d love them 🙂
I’d love them! I’m not in the U.S. So you could count me out due to the postage – or I could pay the extra.
What a sweet set!
My sister would love these! So adorable.
Those are adorable.
A gracious addition to our Christmas table.
They are adorable!
So cute! Here’s hoping I get picked!
These are nice. Would look good on my table.
How cute! Learned a little something in the comment section as well 🙂
Spode is especially nostalgic for me; my Granny has it.
Those are so sweet!
“Elegant” and “cute” are not descriptions usually applicable to the same item, but thanks to these, I know it’s possible.
Can you imagine the amount of shaking done by the grand kids, lots of fun here.
Yes, please! So cute!
