Antique of the Week 9/10/2012 – Mason’s Vista Ironstone

Mason’s Vista pattern is an ironstone transferware made in England by the Masons. It is attributed to Francis Morley who purchased the Charles Mason business and factories in 1848. Mason Vista’s ironstone was largely made for export to the United States beginning in 1890. The color brown came first, followed by blue and then the pink/red. The pink/red color is the most sought after, most common and most produced color.

You can find these pieces and many more at the Albany Antique Mall in Historic Downtown Albany, Oregon.
