Background of Copeland and Garrett Spode

Josiah Spode I is credited with introducing underglaze blue transfer printing into the Staffordshire potteries in 1781–84. In 1797 Josiah Spode II took over the management of the company. He was well prepared for the role, trained as a salesman and a potter. Nine years later, Josiah II was appointed “Potter to the Prince of Wales” when the Prince Regent visited the factory in 1806. By the early 1820s, the Spode factory, managed by Josiah Spode II and his business partner William Copeland, had become the largest pottery in Stoke, England. In 1833 the business was acquired by Copeland and a partner Garrett who continued to use the Spode name.
