    Earthenware

    Fine-quality earthenwares are white or off-white in colour. Since the middle of the eighteenth century earthenware has contained calcined flint. This gives the ceramic both strength and its lightness of colour. Earthenware is sometimes referred to as cream-coloured earthenware. Since Josiah Wedgwood received the patronage of Queen Charlotte in 1765 Wedgwood cream-coloured earthenwares have been called Queen’s ware.
