Looking for fine stoneware with delicate decorative designs? Mason's pottery is renowned for its use of ‘ironstone' clay, developed in England as an alternative to porcelain, as well as its stunning decoration. Often using opulent hand-painted golds and blues, Mason's ceramics showcase some of the most artistic British pottery decoration.
Think colourful blooms, gold trims, dainty birds and subtle trailing plants. You'll also find some pieces decorated in charming pastoral scenes, perfect for displaying on your wall or in your dresser. Pottery this lovely deserves to be seen after all. Real enthusiasts can collect entire dinner sets to take you right through from breakfast to dinner.
Mason pottery pieces are available to cover every imaginable function of dinnerware. From teapots and tureens to cups and saucers, they all add some style and elegance to a table. Choose a set of dinner plates as the perfect wedding gift for a happy couple or invest in some beautiful serving platters to impress your dinner party guests.
For something a little different, keep an eye out for Mason lamp bases, soap dishes and even mantle clocks. Many of the antique pieces have great collectible appeal. Look out for any chips and scratches which could lower the value and make sure the base of your piece holds a genuine Mason stamp.
Brilliant colours and patterns
Mason's designs range from rich reds, muted greens and deep blues. There are many dinner and mug sets that sport innocent, festive images such as the jolly face of Santa or a wintry family scene. You are not confined to dinner services and mugs with Mason's, as they have made all sorts from vases to jugs, pots and even decanter labels and candlesticks. Any piece will add a splash of colour to your home
