Background of Ironstone

Ironstone is vitreous pottery first made in Britain in the early 19th century. Charles James Mason patented Mason’s Ironstone in 1813. Ironstone became famous as a stronger, less expensive alternative for porcelain. In appearance and properties, it is similar to fine stoneware.
