This Camelot pattern was manufactured for 7 years by the Spode China company, based in the UK. Camelot, in it's historical sense is supposed to evoke a "magical" feeling. While we don't know if this pattern quite rises to that level, it does fit the bill of a traditional, subtle pattern with noticeable differences from your standard black and gold trim such as Lenox Urban Lights. The intricately designed curls and jagged gold line make this pattern stand out from the pack.
Our favorite Spode Camelot pieces are the creamer as well as the rimmed soup bowl.
