Background of Imari Wares

In the late 17th century, Japanese potters in Arita first made export porcelains with elaborate designs to cater to European consumers. Since the wares were shipped abroad from the port of Imari, this enameled porcelain was conventionally known as “Imari ware.”

Background of Hicks and Meigh Ironstone

In the early 19th century, ironstone was developed by potters in Staffordshire, England, as a stronger, more durable alternative to porcelain. It is similar to fine stoneware. In 1807 Richard Hicks bought a factory in the High Street, Shelton, where he set up a pottery manufacturer in partnership with Job Meigh II. They manufactured ironstone dishes and vases with the mark “Real Stone China” under a crown.
