In 1813, Charles James Mason received a patent for what he called “Mason’s Patent Ironstone China.” He coined the name “Ironstone” to imply that the material was as durable as ferrous metal and rock. This product soon became popular with the consuming public and remains popular to this day.Other potters were making wares similar to Mason’s Patent Ironstone, and they called their products such names as “Granite China,” “Stone China” and “Opaque China.” One of the companies that produced this type of earthenware was Davenport, which was founded in Longport, Staffordshire, England in 1793 and remained in business until 1887.Reportedly, they started making their “Stone China” in 1805, and continued marking items with this name until about 1820 or so.The first clue is the color of the transfer printed decoration, known to collectors as “mulberry.” It is brownish purple, and got its name because the color was supposed to resemble the juice from crushed mulberries.This rather somber hue first came into popularity in the 1830s, and it remained in fashion until the 1850s. This means that the platter in today’s question was probably made in that time period.

I really enjoyed your book. It was funny, had a good plot, and was well writen. I think it was funny because I liked the way you alternated the characters between East End and West End. There is nothing that Mr Obama has or could say or do that this man would agree with. He speaks only to have himself heard. I have news for Mr Santorum.
We needed military clearance to get in, but it was worth it. In a field of native little bluestem grasses, tucked between two ridges, several mature field thistles supported dozens of nectaring regal fritillary butterflies. Most were the larger, brighter, black and deep orange colored females although we did spot a few dull colored, worn out males, as well as two other fritillaries great spangled and aphrodite skipper, and an orange sulphur butterfly..
