"Mason's Ironstone China has long been admired and collected by many people both here and abroad. But until recently no systematic attempt had been made to distinguish between the various different Mason wares produced by Miles Mason, the founder of the factory, and his three sons. Their porcelain has been particularly elusive. It is also much sought after. By scrutinizing all the available documentary sources, [the authors] have at last been able to piece together the full story of the Mason family's activities from the final decade of the eighteenth century to the original firm's demise in the 1850s. They have given special attention to the career of Miles Mason: above all to his early involvement in the oriental china trade, his development of porcelain and bone-china factories in Liverpool and Lane Delph, and his invention of Ironstone China, patented in 1813 and to be manufactured in bulk until the end."
