In Celebration of Simplicity

In Celebration of Simplicity

Developed in the early 1800s as a less expensive alternative to Chinese porcelain, ironstone had its origins in England but enjoyed enormous popularity among Americans, who loved its simple style and sturdiness. It pairs beautifully with pewter in one personal collection.


  1. I have a wonderful ironstone collection and wish I had a beautiful cabinet like Michelle’s in which to artfully display it all. What a gorgeous photo! I am also intrigued by the history of ironstone. I always wondered why it was called that when it didn’t seem to have metal in it! This is a beautiful post!
