About the Spode company

The Spode company is well known for their English pottery and their traditional ranges of quality dinner ware. The origins of the company go back to the late 18th century when the advanced pottery techniques of the time, which were developed by Spode, allowed them to achieve great success. This followed a few years later with designs such as the Blue Italian range of bone china, this design is still produced today along with the Woodland range and the relatively young Christmas Tree collection which was first launched in 1938.

After over 200 years of trading the Spode company was rescued by the Portmeirion Group in 2009, who are also the owners of Pimpernel and Royal Worcester. This gave Spode the financial backing and ability to continue producing their pottery, a lot of which is still made at the group’s factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England.

Traditional Spode placemats and coasters patterns

Among the traditional range of Spode placemats and coasters is the popular Christmas Tree design which matches the complete range of festive dinner ware. This simple pattern of a stylized Christmas tree festooned with ornaments and set against a pale cream with a green border has been decorating the family table at Christmas time for nearly 90 years.

The Blue Italian pattern is one of the longest serving dinnerware designs and the Blue Italian placemats and coasters make a great choice for a table needing a classic decorative look.
