Spode is an English manufacturer of pottery and porcelain, based in Stoke-on-Trent.

The company was founded by Josiah Spode, who earned renown in the ceramic business for perfecting the blue underglaze printing process in 1784 and for co-developing the formula for fine bone china.

He opened a factory in Stoke-on-Trent in 1767 and in 1776 developed the current Spode factory. His business in creamware (a fine cream-coloured earthenware) and in pearlware (a fine white-glazed earthenware) was very successful.

In the twentieth century the business merged with Royal Worcester.

The Spode Society

The Spode Society (see [http://www.spode.co.uk/History/history_society.html spodesociety.co.uk] ) was founded in 1986 for collectors and admirers of Spode to learn more about the Spode and Copeland families and the production of Spode wares.
