In the 1700's a variety of earthenware called creamware was produced by several companies including Wedgwood and Leeds Pottery in England. Although expensive today, in the 18th century creamware was affordable to the middle class. Some of the most innovative styles are said to be made between 1780-1820. Creamware can come in other colors, as it is named after the pale-white clay used in its production. Many pieces have scalloped or perforated edges which are my favorite!
