    Spode pottery was founded by Josiah Spode he opened a factory in Stoke-on-Trent in 1767 and in 1776 developed the current Spode factory.
    Josiah Spode 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.
    His business in creamware and in pearlware was very successful and the business was carried on through his sons at Stoke until April 1833.
    The pottery was then taken over by Copeland and Garrett untell 1847 when W.T. Copeland and sons took over.
    In 2006, the business merged with Royal Worcester. Two years later the merged company entered administration on 6 November 2008.
