About this title

Synopsis:

Spode-Copeland-Spode is the story of a manufactory, two families, generations of artists, gilders, modellers and their products. Begun by Josiah Spode I and continued by his son Josiah II, the business and works passed to the Copeland family who for five generations continued the traditions of quality and fine potting started by the Spodes. When the business was sold in 1970 its products reverted to the original name Spode. The book contains illustrations showing the range of products, including commissions for Royalty and the nobility not forgetting examples of the everyday wares of two centuries. There is new unpublished information, drawings and plans showing the many changes which have taken place at the Spode works. This is the fascinating story of a Pottery that has survived for over two centuries and today still produces many fine innovative wares.

About the Author:

Vega Wilkinson is married with two children. She was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire but has lived in the Potteries for the last twenty eight years - the ideal place as a collector to further her love of fine china and especially landscape decoration which led to research in the archives of Spode and the Copeland family at Trelissick Cornwall. She has published articles on Copeland and Minton, Copeland A Shire book; written the guide book to the Copeland China collection at Trelissick Cornwall, and is now preparing a book A Century of Ceramic Artist 1800-1900.
