Spode-Copeland-Spode: The Works and Its People, 1770-1970
"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 then passed to the Copeland family who for five generations continued the traditions of quality and fine potting started by the Spodes. In 1970 the business reverted to its original name, Spode." "The book contains hitherto unpublished research from the Copeland family archives at Trelissick, Cornwall, the home of Spencer Copeland, and new research on the artists and gilders employed at the factory. Original pen and ink drawings of the factory site by Harold Holdway, late Art Director of Spode, were created especially for this book and detailed plans of the Spode works show its development on the nine acre site. More than three hundred illustrations show the wide range of products, from the everyday ware of two centuries to commissions for royalty and nobility." "This is the story of a pottery that has survived for over two hundred years and still produces fine innovative ware."--Jacket.
