From the 1760s, shopkeepers were selling crockery made from a fine, cream-coloured terracotta, called creamware, which was often hand- painted over the glaze. The dishes used at the chief meal of the day were often of creamware, which was a material favoured by the Wedgwood factory. This custom continued up to the 1830s.
