1784

Although underglaze blue transfer printing was introduced on Worcester porcelain by 1757-58, it was almost 30 years later before Josiah Spode perfected the process for earthenware.

Spode’s earliest patterns in the late 1780s included Mandarin and Buffalo, the latter is illustrated¬† here . Early wares are typically a dark, inky blue colour; designs are often in the Chinese style, and the engraving is created with¬† basic linear cuts.
