Josiah Spode was the great Pioneer among the Georgian potters in England, circa year 1800 he perfected the bone china recipe that has been used by everyone ever since, and he was also the leading potter behind the technique of transfer ware, making it possible for English potters to replace the Chinese export china, which had come to an end around that time, with their own. This was fundamental to a thriving industry that would last for about 150 years and provide half the world with their tableware.

W. T. Copeland (c.1847-1970)
