Godden's Guide to Ironstone, Stone and Granite Wares Hardback
British Ironstone China and the related stone china and granite ceramic bodies are as important in their way as English creamwares or indeed bone china itself.
Initially, the ironstone-type bodies were introduced to emulate, rival and undersell the vast and popular importations of Oriental porcelains.
Not only did the ironstone manufacturers succeed in this ideal but they progressed to take over the trade.
