Josiah Spode founded Spode in Stoke-on-Trent in 1770, at about the same time as the founding of Coalport and Minton. He started by producing creamware and pearlware. He introduced underglaze blue transfer printing.
Josiah Spode has sometimes been credited with developing the process for fine bone china.
From 1847 Spode was owned by W.T. Copeland and Sons. In 1970 the name Spode Ltd appears on the hallmark.
Spode merged with Royal Worcester which, in turn, was acquired by Portmeiron Group.
