Spode is one of the most popular lines we carry, and for good reason. Founder Josiah Spode opened the doors of his porcelain factory in 1780. Under his careful guidance, the Spode factory introduced two important breakthroughs in the development of English ceramics. The first was a formula for bone china that is still used today. Using bone ash, Spode was the first English china manufacturer to achieve higher firing temperatures, resulting in non-porous, beautifully detailed, and longer-lasting china. The company's second important achievement was perfecting the “underglaze” decorating process - also in use today. Spode developed ways of applying intricate designs to china that would last for years without chipping, scratching, or fading. Spode's addition of bone ash to the composition of his china and his methods for decorating it were both achieved economically – at prices the English middle class could afford.
