Josiah Spode I died suddenly in 1797, and it fell to his son Josiah Spode II to continue and perfect his father’s developments. In partnership with William Copeland, Josiah II continued the business for the next thirty years. Under their management in the early 19th century, considered by many to be the “Golden Age” of English ceramics, the company grew to be the largest pottery in Stoke and a pre-eminent manufacturer of fine ceramics of every kind. Josiah Spode II was appointed “Potter to the Prince of Wales” when the Prince Regent visited the factory in 1806.
