Butter pat/small dish "To wish you Merry Christmas" in the blue Spode's Italian colorway. 3" wide. c. 1930s/1940s. These charming Christmas pats were make by Copeland Spode especially for Grace Lloyd Collins to use as Christmas gifts for her friends and most valued customers.

CONDITION: Vintage item. No problems.

"[Grace Lloyd] opened the Green Lantern Studio at 216 West 9th Street in Wilmington [Delaware] in 1925 but moved to 220 West 9th in 1928. At that time, she changed the shop's name to "Grace Lloyd Collins." The shop specialized in fine gifts, such as silver, crystal and china. Part of its success came from exclusive area distribution rights to a number of fine china lines. In 1938, she was the sole distributor of the Wilmington Tercentenary commemorative plates made by Spode of England. Grace Walsh proved to be an effective businesswoman with a keen appreciation for advertising and promotional strategies. She used social registers for contacts, newsletters to reach customers, and the store was one of the first shops in Wilmington to feature a bridal registry. In May 1951, Grace Lloyd Collins married her second husband, Robert Walsh. He was active in the management of a new suburban store which opened in 1957 in Fairfax. Both stores operated as "Lloyd-Walsh" and continued the tradition of offering fine merchandise. The downtown Wilmington store closed in 1963 and the remaining store was sold to Ann Morris in 1986 when Mrs. Walsh retired." University of Delaware Archives
