Ironstone or stone china is a high fired white pottery recognized by its heavy weight and dense body. The original body was produced by Turner in 1800.

Mason in 1813 patented "Ironstone China" and Spode and Davenport made "Stone China". Many other British manufacturers also produced similar wares.

Practical, sturdy and resistant to chips it soon became popular for everyday use. In the early years it was decorated in bright colors often in Oriental style patterns.

Later in the 19th century ironstone was used for blue printed wares and for the Flow Blue wares
