Pratt Ware

Pratt Ware takes its name from a family of potters who worked in Staffordshire in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Creamware is a cream-coloured earthenware created about 1750 by the potters of Staffordshire, England, which proved ideal for domestic ware. It was popular until the 1820s. It was also known as tortoiseshellware or Pratt ware depending on the colour of glaze used.

The most notable producer of creamware was Josiah Wedgwood. Around 1779, he was able to lighten the cream color to a bluish white and sold this more desirable product under the name pearl ware. Wedgwood supplied his creamware to Queen Charlotte and Catherine the Great and used the trade name Queen's ware.
