Product Description

SPODE POTTERY
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.
St.CHAD GOSPELS
St.Chad died in 672 AD (feast day 2nd March) in Lichfield, Mercia, and the illuminated Gospels are now kept in Lichield Cathedral. He was a monastic leader, abbot and the first bishop of Lichfield and credited with bringing Christianity to the ancient English Kingdom of Mercia. The manuscript contains the Gospels of Matthew and Mark plus a part of St.Luke. A second volume disappeared during the English Civil War. The Gospels are unique as they are one of the earliest known examples of written Welsh.
