In the late 1700s, the pottery industry started adding Cornish stone (sometimes called China stone) to the porcelain mix, the addition reduces the likelihood of the pottery distorting during firing it also produces a whiter “glassier” finish.Josiah Spode I was born in 1733, after worked for several local potters, in 1776 he established his own factory in Church Street, (then known as High Street) Stoke on Trent. After his death in 1797, the factory was run by his son Josiah Spode II in partnership with William Copeland.In 1821 Spode started to manufacture Felspar (modern spelling Feldspar) Porcelain, the felspar used was a purer form of Cornish Stone the resulting porcelain was more translucent and became highly fashionable. Production continued into the Copeland & Garrett phase of the company (1833-1847).
