HISTORY OF STONE CHINA

This Stone China
Opaque China, Imperial Stone China, Patent Ironstone China and New Stone China. This is just to name several. Basically, these ironstone wares were practically the same save for a few different ingredients and their amounts added during production.

Considering the caliber of this renowned manufacturer, this Soup Tureen & Tray is rare and of museum quality, regardless of its minor chips here and there as therein described, and is most certainly worthy of a connoisseur private collection or a museum collection.

CONDITION: (SOUP TUREEN)

CONDITION: (UNDER TRAY/PLATTER) There are three under chips on the back side of the tray which look much larger in the photo than in actuality.

The chips look more serious than what they actually are due to the fact of a very old and poor quality restoration that has changed color over the years.
The minor chips can be professionally restored should one so desire. However, none of the chipping shows externally.
