Some experts believe that the name ironstone resulted from the fact that the "wares were as hard as iron" Mason's joined the Wedgwood Group in 1973 and the name is continued on dinnerware. All pieces are sumptuously decorated in typical Imari colourway, with Iron Red, Cobalt Blue and generous use of 22 carat gold combining to stunning effect. The Imari pattern embodies many Japanese and Oriental influences. Imari is the port from where it was most convenient to export Japanese porcelain to Europe and America.The exquisite decoration to all pieces serves to endorse the quality of the Tea Service.
