Copeland-Spode Fine Stoneware 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-colored earthenware) and in pearlware (a fine white-glazed earthenware) was very successful.
