    a fine quality white earthenware in imitation of Chinese hard paste porcelain Wedgewood developed cream ware and pearl ware Spode introduced stoneware and by 1813 C J Mason had invented ironstone Each formula was harder stronger and whiter than the one before The decorations applied by the transfer printing process developed about the 1780 s and soon began to replace hand painting made use of copperplate printing techniques The image from an engraved metal plate was printed on paper which was then trimmed and fitted as it was applied to the earthenware surface The ware was then immersed in water and the paper carefully peeled away leaving the oil based ink image on the surface of the ware This process was greatly facilitated by the invention of a new machine for the making of tissue paper after the turn of the 19th century facilitating the great production of transfer printed wares during the first half of the 19th century Blue ink was the most popular of colors used on the white earthenware body in imitation of the blue and white Chinese export ware but other colors such as black and brown were also used In existence since the 17th century the Staffordshire potteries began by the 1760 s to decorate their wares with hand painted Chinese images With the new transfer printing process they began to produce designs such as the fanciful Chinese inspired Willow pattern By the 1790 s scenes of the classical world replaced the Chinese designs in popularity After the turn of the 19th century taste began again to shift towards images of county houses and views of well known places in Britain These early English views were closely followed by even more numerous views of American buildings and scenery Most of these wares were produced for the new and lucrative American market appealing to the great patriotic pride in the new republic A collection of Staffordshire pottery depicting Philadelphia scenes by various artists has been installed in the cupboard on the wall opposite the Birch prints in the Palladian Hall The views on these table wares include The Pennsylvania Hospital the nation s first hospital founded in 1751 under the guidance of Benjamin Franklin The original brick building still stands today on its original site between Eighth and Ninth Spruce and Pine streets The Mendenhall Ferry not yet installed From William Birch s Country Seats of the United States of North America a second series of engravings published in 1808 The building on the left of the Schuylkill River was the Mendenhall Inn a popular pleasure resort for Philadelphia residents An early rope ferry in midstream is carrying two people and a horse in a flat bottomed river boat Two country homes half hidden by trees in the background belonged respectively to Joseph Sims and to Dr Philip Syng Physick a noted Philadelphia surgeon These were two of the three properties that were later to form the grounds of Laurel Hill Cemetery north of Fairmount Park
