Background of Spode Pottery

Spode is a renowned and respected name in ceramics. Founded by Josiah Spode in 1776, the company has a long and rich history, with his son Josiah Spode II taking over the company in 1779 and running it with William Copeland. As a result, the company became the largest pottery in Stoke, England, and a leading manufacturer of English ceramics. Josiah Spode II was appointed “Potter to the Prince of Wales” in 1806, further solidifying the company’s reputation for quality and excellence.

Background of English Ironstone

In the early 19th century, potters in Staffordshire, England, developed ironstone as a more robust, more durable alternative to porcelain.
It is similar to fine stoneware.
