2020 marks a magnificent 250 years of Spode. And to celebrate we’ve created a fabulous anniversary collection so you too can own a little bit of Spode history.

Mixing in some iconic designs from the adored Blue Italian collection, with archive patterns reimagined in irresistible colourways and extraordinary limited edition pieces to celebrate in style.

Timeless Blue and White

The epitome of style, we couldn’t celebrate 250 years of Spode without a nod to the timeless classic, Blue Italian. In production since 1816, Blue Italian is the ultimate blue and white collection that’s been making a statement in homes around the world for over 200 years.

A Spode Blue Italian set of three statement pieces has been created especially to celebrate the anniversary year and to sit beautifully with your existing Blue Italian Spode crockery. Including a for serving the after dinner cheese course, an Octagonal Platter and a beautiful Daisy Bowl ideal for mouth-watering salads and desserts. Dinner party essentials.

Limited Edition

Inspired by the flavours of tea and made with the finest botanicals, Spode has created a delicious London Dry Gin especially to celebrate 250 years. A wonderful gift for fellow milestone birthday celebrations, anniversaries, or just because you love Spode. Enjoy simply with tonic and ice, or mix into a refreshing cocktail.

For the ultimate G&T – serve the limited edition spirit in Spode teacups. These Limited Edition Black Italian Teacups & Spoons are available as a set to enjoy both a cup of tea and G&Tea, or why not spoil yourself with the Limited Edition Black Italian Gin and Teacup set instead?

Tea or gin not your go-to tipple? You can enjoy the stylish Black Italian collection with these Limited Edition Spode Black Italian Espresso Cup & Saucers and Limited Edition Black Italian Mugs with Spoons too. Perfect for the coffee connoisseur.

For the ultimate home accessories, look no further than our exclusive candles. Lift your senses with the oriental aromas of Blue Italian and the rich woody accord of Black Italian with our 3 new candle sets; Blue Italian Trinket Box Candle, Blue Italian Teacup Candle and Black Italian Espresso Cup Candles. A fusion of Spode’s iconic design and an indulgent home fragrance. What a treat.

Archive Designs

With 250 years’ worth of patterns in the Spode archive, we just had to explore them for our anniversary year. It would have been rude not to, no?

We took inspiration from not one, but three archive designs for our exclusive collection with John Lewis. A modern melding of heritage designs created Zoological Gardens; a mix and match collection in shades of pink, turquoise and monochrome featuring a spectacular animal print. Oh, yes.

We’ve also crafted an exclusive tableware collection especially for Fortnum and Mason, re-imagining the iconic Blue Italian pattern onto delicately scalloped fine bone china in black and cranberry. The 1770 Italian collection features everything you need for the most beautiful afternoon tea setting or wonderful luncheon.

And if that isn’t quite enough, you can also delve into our rich history with the Spode Heritage collection. Featuring another three archive patterns in an effortless black and white colour palette. Creating the chicest of tablescapes.
