A Spode ABC: a companion to the SpodeHistory blog. Information in alphabetical order relating to the history of the famous pottery manufacturer from Stoke. The company used various names: Spode; Copeland & Garrett; W. T. Copeland.
I have added another link to a new blog post on parian on the P page.
If you love parian ware already or want to know what it is and learn more about the production of the Spode factory then have a look at my blog Spode History as well as the P page here... and of course the go-to book by Robert Copeland. Full details on my booklist.
As well as for statuary, parian could also be used for the manufacture of decorative items such as vases and tableware such as this water bottle illustrated here.
