Antique Spode Tureen Pair

"The Spode factory was without doubt the most important factory in the 19th century"

Antoinette Faÿ-Hallé, Curator, Sèvres

With a stately aesthetic that is timeless and rich, we are pleased to present this pair of magnificent antique porcelain tureens produced by the venerable potters at Spode. In Spode's exceptional "Cracked Ice and Prunus" pattern from the early 1800s, the tureens are decorated in shades of sage green and indigo blue with gleaming gold embellishments. Rare and refined, these exquisite tureens have notched lids to accommodate a ladle and will be a prized addition to your collection. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1820. In good antique condition with a discreet chip on the base of one tureen, crazing on the interior of both tureens and discoloration on the interior of one tureen. Please see alternate images for details. Tureens measure 6.5"H x 7.75"W. Handwash only.

Learn More About Spode China

Spode China was started in 1767 by Josiah Spode I, who became a visionary in business and in tableware. In the late 1700s, the popular chinaware from the Orient was becoming scarcer and Britain needed new sources for their dinnerware needs. Josiah Spode answered the call.

At the age of 16, Josiah had apprenticed with master potter Thomas Whieldon.  He learned much about pottery and design and in 1770 opened the doors to his own porcelain factory in Stoke-on-Trent.

The Spode factory, under the careful guidance of Josiah, was responsible for two of the most important breakthroughs in English ceramics: first, the formula for bone china that is used today and, even more importantly, he perfected the "underglaze" printing process that is practiced to this day. Many intricate patterns could be applied to pieces without the worries of chipping, scratching and fading.

Delightfully little has changed since the Spode company first began producing English pottery in the 1700s. Its factory, still located in Stoke-on-Trent, is in operation today, and its methods of production have been modified only slightly. Transferware patterns continue to be created with handcrafted copper plates and hand-rubbed transfer sheets, and the earthenware is still made with ingredients that have been used since 1820.
