Q: I bought two bowls at a Marin County antiques shop. The way they nest I think it was a set of three originally. Does this lessen the value? Like the better-known Staffordshire, neighboring Derbyshire was home to a number of potteries dating to the 18th century. Beginning about , Mason pottery made household goods, as did fellow Derbyshire Watt and Cash.

Two more confusing new marks have been found on reproductions of 19th century ceramics. The new marks are applied in dark blue transfer. ACRN found the crown mark on biscuit jars decorated in Mason’s “Japan” style decoration and the ribbon mark on a toast rack with chintz styled decoration. Like other confusing new marks, these two recent additions can be expected to show up on a wide variety of 19th century copies.

These pieces with their facsimiles of old marks were made in China for the antique reproduction wholesale trade. The crown mark is loosely similar to original Mason’s ironstone marks. Words within the draped cloth on the original are usually “Patent Ironstone China” or sometimes “Improved Ironstone China.

John Mason. Mason, along with Voulkos and other west coast artists, blurred the boundaries between traditional ceramics and sculpture in the s and 60s.

Under-glaze, transfer printed blue and white ware was, and still is, a staple product of the UK pottery industry. The pattern has a fascinating history. Its origins, however are even older and tradition has it that the pattern was brought to Europe from China or Japan at some time in the late 18 th Century. Frantz Heinrich Muller first produced the pattern at his pottery in Copenhagen at some time between and After establishing his pottery he travelled to Germany and recruited skilled workers from the Meissen factories.

Muller was a chemist and his contribution may have been the development of the characteristic ultramarine blue used on the wares. On close examination the pattern consists of a repeating pattern of mussels and stylized flowers traditionally in an under-glaze blue on a white background. The pattern is complex, but not over-elaborate and sits crisply on any pure white background.

To quote from the Pottery Gazette —. It seems somehow to typify the typical Danish love of hygiene in food preparation and service, this quality being self-expressed in terms of coolness.

Ironstone china , ironstone ware or most commonly just ironstone , is a type of vitreous pottery first made in the United Kingdom in the early 19th century. It is often classed as earthenware [1] [2] although in appearance and properties it is similar to fine stoneware. There is no iron in ironstone; its name is derived from its notable strength and durability.

Ironstone in Britain’s Staffordshire potteries was closely associated with the company founded by Charles James Mason following his patent of , [1] [5] with the name subsequently becoming generic. Antique ironstone wares are collectable, and in particular items made by Mason’s. Ironstone was patented by the British potter Charles James Mason in Subsequently, Mason continued this business, but after the East India Company ceased the bulk importation of Oriental porcelain in he began to manufacture his own wares.

Subsequently other manufacturers produced ironstone, [11] with James Edwards — of the Dalehall Pottery in Staffordshire also credited as its pioneer. A variety of ironstone types was being produced by the midth century.

Over the past hundred years or so, almost every object in the domestic kitchen has been adapted to changing needs and fashions of society. But there is one object that is almost unchanged since it was first made over a century ago. Not just any mixing bowl — but THE mixing bowl, the one that almost every house in the country has. The one that appears on every cookery programme and in every photograph of a modern kitchen. Yes, that generic mixing bowl in a familiar cream colour with a bit of a pattern around the outside that almost everyone owns is not just some random object churned out in their millions in some dusty part of China, but is a year old design classic, and is still made by the same English pottery company.

Although the company itself still has factories in England, sadly production of the mixing bowls themselves moved to an unnamed Western European country recently and over the years different people have owned the company — but wonderfully, it is still the same firm, and the same unchanged mixing bowl design. For a company that has been around for years , and has managed to infiltrate practically every kitchen in the land, it has proven surprisingly difficult to find out much about.
