The Beauty of Ironstone

The Beauty of Ironstone

Embossed patterns featuring grains, flowers, and leaves distinguish pieces made in the 1850s and 1860s. 

The Beauty of Ironstone
English white ironstone has been tickling the fancy of Americans with its decidedly unfancy appeal since it was first imported and fervently acquired in the nineteenth century. Now a chic antique, the gleaming all-white earthenware has a goes-with-anything simplicity and a fits-in-anywhere charm that elicit as much pleasure among modern-day collectors as when it graced the tables of colonists, pioneers, and Victorians centuries ago.

  1. How lovely!

    I have never collected any of these pieces, but I can truly see the value and benefit of it’s simplicity and humble qualities which would work well in formal OR informal settings!

    I think this sort of style and simple design would be great for a breakfast or Sunday brunch gathering!
