HISTORY OF MASONS-ASHWORTHS FACTORY

MASONíS "MANDARIN" VEGETABLE

MASON'S, VISTA PATTERN 12 1/4" PLATE, C. 1932

MASON'S "VISTA" PATTERN PLATE



The Masons had been in business for years and around 1862 sold out to G. L. Ashworth & Bros. (LTD.), who carried on with similar marks and produced excellent quality china. Their products are treasured for their quality as well. However their ingredients have changed over the years and cannot surmount the former product of the early Charles Mason factory.
