'The Spode factory was without doubt the most important factory in the 19th century' 

My favourite quote about Spode from 'Nineteenth-Century European Porcelain' by Antoinette Fay-Hallé, Curator, Sèvres, published by Trefoil Books, London 1983


'The British Library would like to archive your website [Spode History] in the UK Web Archive.'


'In the Romance of Commerce none is more worthy to find a place than Josiah Spode, his son, and grandson, who with assurance, art, and enthusiasm founded and maintained the Ceramic Factory in Staffordshire from which so much that is beautiful and fine emanated '

'Old Spode' by T. G. Cannon, published by T. Werner Laurie Ltd, London 1924
