Spode

Josiah Spode gave his name to the company he founded in Stoke-on-Trent in 1770 to produce creamware and pearlware. Right from the beginning of the company, it improved the techniques for underglaze colour transfer they used for much of their blue and white patterns. Later, Josiah participated in the development for making fine bone china.

Eventually, W.T. Copeland and Sons purchased the company in 1847. Nevertheless, the new owners continued using the Spode name on some lines of china, especially after 1970.

In 2006 Spode merged with Royal Worcester. In turn, the Portmeiron group acquired the financial strapped merged company in 2009.
