Description

DeepL Translate

Footed white ironstone bowl.

Made in Belgium, early 20th c in the Belgian earthenware factories of Saint Ghislain in Hainaut.

The Saint Ghislain earthenware factory was an important player in the development of earthenware production in Belgium, producing unique and high-quality ceramics that were sought after by collectors and contributing to the establishment of the area as a hub for clay products.

Ironstone (terre de fer in French) was developed in efforts to find a substitute for porcelain that could be more mass-produced.
Ironstone is sturdier and more durable than porcelain, it is made of clay mixed with feldspar and kaolin.
It is also more opaque, and it can be bright white as here or creamy coloured.
slight grazing on the foot which adds to the charm of this piece.


Natalia says “this is just a charming piece to display your fruit and vegetables or even cakes at tea time”.
