Product Description

Josiah Spode established his pottery business in 1767 in Stoke On Trent, England. In the late 18th century Josiah produced what has been described as the single most significant development in the history of his industry – the perfection of the formula for fine bone china. At the time European potters were trying to formulate the equivalent of porcelain which had started to be imported from China. Bone china had similar properties to porcelain and it was based on the Kaolin clay that was discovered in Cornwall.
The Prince of Wales visited the factory in 1806 and, impressed by what he saw, asked Spode to produce the banqueting service for his coronation as George IV. The company has held Royal Warrants ever since.
The monastery of Lindisfarne was founded about 635 AD on a small outcrop of land, now known as Holy Island, off the coast of Northumberland. The monastery was founded by St.Aiden who was an Irish monk who had come from the Iona community in Scotland. He converted the people of Northumberland to Christianity. The famous Lindisfarne Gospels were written to honour St.Cuthbert, a monk. hermit and for a time bishop of Lindisfarne. The Gospels are one of the most magnificent to survive from Anglo-Saxon England. They are now kept in the British Library, London.
Lindisfarne was the first place that the Vikings invaded in 793 AD.
