“Spiked”  (England)

England. These "Spiked" sets were made in the 18th century, but I'm not sure when the production stopped. Probably early 19th century. They exist in a wide variety. This set is a nice example of one of the later sets of this type. I do not know whether "Spiked" is an official name for this type, but it describes it best.
