Many of you have asked me how you know if the white pitcher or plate etc. you have is actually white ironstone. Here is one of the crests that will let you know you have found a treasure. This crest is found on the bottom of a pitcher that tells you it is from Hanley England manufactured by J and G Meakin and labeled Ironstone China. I lovelovelove the crown at the top.
If you find this crest you have found a treasure.
