Spode was founded in 1770 by Josiah Spode in Stoke-on-Trent, England.  Josiah was a manager at the Turner and Banks factory, when Turner died, he took over the business.  By 1776, he was producing earthenware under the famous Spode name.  In 1797 Spode died and left the business to his son, Josiah Spode.  When Josiah Spode died, he was succeeded by his son, Josiah Spode III who ran the business until he died in 1829. In 1833 Spode was purchased by a partner of Josiah Spode III named William Taylor Copeland.  Mr. Taylor entered into a partnership with colleague Thomas Garrett, and the firm was known as Copeland & Garrett until 1847.  After 1847 the business continued as W.T. Copeland and sons until 1970, and again the term 'Spode' or 'Late Spode' continued in use alongside the name of Copeland. The company was sold by the Copeland family in 1966 to the Carborundum Company Ltd.  In honor of the company's 200th anniversary in 1970, the name was changed back to "Spode" to honor its founder, Josiah Spode. Spode merged Royal Worcester in 2006. The merged companies entered administration on 6 November 2008. The brand names Royal Worcester and Spode, the intellectual property and some of the stock, were acquired by Portmeirion Group on 23 April 2009.  Many items in Spode's Blue Italian and Woodland ranges are now made at Portmeirion Group's factory in Stoke-on-Trent, others are outsourced around the world.
