History

Spode was founded by Josiah Spode in 1770 in Stoke-on-Trent. After some early trials, Spode perfected a stoneware, an extremely refined stoneware that came closer to porcelain than any previously, and introduced his “Stone-China” in 1813. It was light in body, greyish-white, and gritty where it was not glazed and approached translucence in the early wares; later Stone-Ware became opaque. Spode pattern books, which record about 75,000 patterns, survive from about 1800.

Decorator’s Tip

Layer on top of a simpler plate, such as our Wedgwood Thistle Pattern Dishes, for a stunning combination.
