Spode is an English Stoke-on-Trent based pottery company that was founded by Josiah Spode (1733-1797) in 1770. Josiah Spode earned renown for perfecting under-glaze blue transfer printing in 1783-1784 - a development that led to the launch in 1816 of Spode's Blue Italian range which has remained in production ever since.
Josiah Spode is also often credited with developing a successful formula for fine bone china. Whether this is true or not, his son, Josiah Spode II, was certainly responsible for the successful marketing of English bone china.

Spode's Byron
Spode's Byron pattern was registered with the British Patent Office on June 19th 1851 with registered number 79300. The registered version of the design shows a design with a trellis border and a scene depicting a girl giving a drink to a boy. This design does not appear to have been used in Spode's Byron pattern tableware but it does record the first use of the trellis border design.

Spode's Byron pattern for tableware was first produced in the 1930s and used a different scene for the centre of each different shape within a service. The most popular version of the pattern had pattern number S518 and was introduced in 1933. The pattern was printed in brown and then hand coloured. A list of most of the scenes used for the various centres and their sources can be found in Spode and Copeland Marks and Other Relevant Intelligence by Robert Copeland.
