Spode porcelain was introduced about 1800 in the factory of Josiah Spode and Josiah Spode II at Stoke-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, England. This hybrid porcelainâ€”combining the ingredients of hard-paste porcelain (china clay and china stone) and bone ashâ€”became the standard English bone china. Blue Italian is one of their oldest patterns and certainly iconic. In honour of King Charles III, the company has produced a stately version of the blue and white pattern with commemorative details.
This is as complete a feature as you can find on the history of Spodeâ€™s Blue Italian
