Toy dishes. Description: Toy saucers, cup, and sugar bowl. Group of white china doll's dishes.White ironstone cup, 2 saucers, and sugar bowl with lid. From the History Information Station: These little dishes are very similar to the real ironstone dishes you can see in this kitchen. Both children and their parents liked ironstone. It made excellent dishes and toys because it was smooth and white and shiny, like expensive porcelain, but it was also tough and durable and cheap. Toy dishes were usually made at the same factories as real dishes, and manufacturers sometimes included a complimentary set of toy dishes with a purchase of a regular set.
