The registered design number 575764 on the back of this bowl dates it back to exactly 1910 nearly 110 years ago. This bowl was made by Copeland Spode in England and is an item produced by Spode in the potteries in Stoke on trend UK well before production moved to the Far East some years ago. A very rare and sought after item hand made and hand decorated in the UK. Spode is one of the greatest names of the Industrial Revolution.
Josiah Spode I was born in 1733 and after several years working for other local potters, established his own company in 1776 in Church Street, (then known as High Street) Stoke and, like his neighbour and friend Josiah Wedgwood, concentrating on the production of ceramic wares of the finest quality in a variety of bodies. He is particularly recognised as having developed the technique for underglaze transfer printing on earthenware c. 1784 and to have produced the first printed Willow patterns 1784-90s. He focused his attention on the manufacture of porcelain, a technically more difficult but much finer material than he had previously made, introducing in 1796 a new type of porcelain which he first called Stoke China but shortly afterwards renamed Bone China, because of the high proportion of calcined ox-bone in its formula.
Josiah Spode I died suddenly in 1797 and it fell to his son Josiah Spode II to continue and perfect his fathers developments. Spode II was appointed Potter to the Prince of Wales when the Prince Regent visited the factory in 1806.Josiah IIs china bodies, first Bone China and, from 1822, its derivative, Felspar Porcelain, outclassed all other contemporary English porcelains not just in terms of beauty but also of reliability of manufacture. Spodes Felspar Porcelain is recognised as the forerunner of all modern English Bone China.
