Creamware was created in the 1760s by Josiah Wedgwood, who was the first of the English potters to produce a cream colored earthenware with a light colored body. Wedgwood marketed these wares as Queensware after Queen Charlotte gave Wedgwood the honor of ordering a set. As its popularity increased many of the other English potters began to make creamware as well, and it replaced saltglaze stoneware as the dinner ware of all but the high aristocracy, which most likely would have had a service of Chinese export porcelain dishes
