Spode’s Blue Room collection has appeared in English homes since the
18th Century, adopting a medley of distinct motifs and patterns along
with unique borders lifted from the Spode archives. The fabulous blue
shade finds its origins in Spode’s original process of blue under glaze
printing on to earthenware vessels from engraved copper plates, which
gives Spode pottery and Blue Room a sense of timeless beauty.

the collection in which Josiah Spode first perfected the art of
under-glaze blue printing, each piece is a little slice from the pages
