Spode is a Stoke-on-Trent (city in Staffordshire, England) pottery company founded by Josiah Spode in 1770. Josiah Spode is most known for his perfection of an under glaze transfer process still in practice today. This allowed the company to mass produce the pottery forever changing the ceramic business. Spode launched the Blue Italian print in 1816, a print still in production today. This year marks the 200 year of production, blessing us with blue and white Spode china for two centuries.
One Kings Lane is hosting a Spode sale selling both antique and new release pieces. I happened upon this sale yesterday while perusing art and couldn't stop looking at all the incredible pieces they are offering. Some of them are quite pricey and others very reasonable, but all of the pieces are well worth the ticket price.
I picked all of my favorites for you ... but you need to hurry. The sale ends very soon! I do love a sale and the time frame just makes it more exciting, right?
I will confess that I purchased the teaspoons and this lunch tray. I wanted so much ... but I had to refrain. I seem to be acquiring more blue and white than I have the space for currently. I know ... I can't think about that today. Sort of what happens when you are ordered to stay home and rest. I had to take a break from my House of Cards marathon.
So much goodness! Stop reading and start shopping!!
