This nice set of eight white ironstone china dates from circa 1900. They were made by Maddock & Co. and are in extremely nice condition. These are from my personal collection, I have started to downsize.
The bottom stamp, embellished with a crown and banners, identifies these sweet little dishes as Royal Stone China, made by John Maddock's company of Burslem, England. This purportedly is the only Maddock mark to include "& Co." which none of his other marks did.
Each is approximately 2 inches square, with a short upright rim and rounded corners.
CONDITION is extremely nice for this type and age of dinnerware. The white base ware is bright and clear. There are NO cracks and NO repairs. There is some light glaze crazing (the glaze only, not the pottery beneath). One pat has a tiny nick/flake off the underside that does not show for display. One other pat has a slightly "warped" edge, made that way apparently by having been removed too soon from its mold, before the clay had hardened quite enough. SEE OUR PHOTO WITH THE YELLOW "X" to see both of these.
