Update To 'Spode - A Short History'

 Detail of a print from the V and A collectionsI have updated one of my first blogs: Spode - A Short History

You can find more references for further study and a more comprehensive Factory 'Family' Tree - you can also click Who Owned Spode? to go straight to this.

The V & A Museum in London has a fabulous collection of Spode from all eras - have a look through their collection pages and enjoy a feast of  beautiful pottery.

I found the bone china dinner and dessert ware in the collection especially interesting as the Spode museum didn't have such a complete dinner service in bone china in its collection when I worked there. What's more, this one also belonged to the Spode family - a sure sign of high quality product! It is hand painted with many different flower groups within a striking blue border.
