FACTS & HISTORY: This durable ironstone china is hand glazed and hand stenciled by Homer Laughlin China Company, It was produced for the  US Navy for use in the Officers Ward Room and Officers Mess. 

The Homer Laughlin China Company flourised until the onset of World War II. During the war years, much of the company's production was shifted to the production of china for our armed forces. After the war, production returned to normal and the company reached its peak production year in 1948. More than 3,000 workers were employed to produce over ten million dozen pieces of ware.

Ironstone china, ironstone ware or most commonly just ironstone, is a type of vitreous pottery first made in the United Kingdom in the early 19th century. It is often classed as earthenware although in appearance and properties it is similar to fine stoneware. It was developed in the 19th century by potters in Staffordshire, England, as a cheaper, mass-produced alternative for porcelain.
