Spode china, 'Christmas Tree' pattern ???
Do any of you have the Spode Christmas china, 'Christmas Tree' ? Over the years I have added to my set and now have service for 12. But, I have had a few problems with it. On this pattern there is a green border on every piece. A handfull of pieces that I have, have developed cracks and flaking in the green border. I contacted Spode the first time it happened, about 10 years ago, they replaced every piece without question. They were aware of the defect, it was a problem in 'some production' of this pattern. I now have 7 more pieces with the same issue. I contacted them again, they will replace everything but this time they want me to pay for shipping.
Two questions. #1, have any of you who have this pattern had this same problem with the green border flaking off? #2. Would you pay $10. for the shipping of these replacement pieces?
I love this pattern and use it every year from just after Thanksgiving until well into January.
Thanks, Kids. Just thought I would ask.
