Pineapple Pattern

Frequently Asked Questions...

Can anyone help me to identify a Mason's Ironstone China pattern?

I've 'inherited' a dinner-set of Mason's china which I believe was used by my late great-aunt who died in the 1970's. I don't think it's 'antique' as such, maybe c1950-1970? There is no pattern number on the base to help identification, but it bears the Mason's ironstone china (England) patent and imprints OB and WS (or it may be SM). The pattern is of fruit - a pineapple surrounded by what could be an orange, grapes and a plum. The 8" side plate, for example, bears 3 of these on a cream coloured background. The edge of the plate is not quite round/smooth and is outlined in green.

I've trawled through all the online china websites and can't find anything similar so if anybody knows more or where/who to try next, it would be greatly appreciated!


Answer:

It would be very difficult to name this pattern without seeing it, but from the information that you have given, I would say that it is pre-1920 because after that, pottery was stamped ' Made in England ' rather than just ' England. ' This is not a fixed rule though. Mason's in particular, use the old back stamps on modern pieces.

There is a book that is usually available in the library/Waterstones or even your local antique dealer may have a copy, that will date the marks you have described. It is called ' Encyclopaedia of British pottery and Porcelain ' by Geoffrey Godden. This will find it because it is used by serious collectors of pottery. To buy it will cost £32.50 on Amazon.

Geoffrey Godden also wrote a book on all Mason's pottery patterns. Again I found this on Amazon by typing in Mason's Pottery.

The final alternative if non of these find your pattern, is to write to the factory. It is now owned by Wedgewood. www.waterfordandwedgewood.com. They should be able to name it because they usually have the pattern books and possibly a museum.

Food Allergies, Intolerance and Adverse Reactions Associated With Specific Pollens

Ragweed pollen has been shown to be associated with these type of reactions after people eat bananas and fruits in the gourd family such as watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe. Pollen from Mugwort, another weed also known as Sagebrush, in the Artemisia family, has been associated with allergic reactions to celery, carrots, fruits in the Rosaceae family (apples, cherries, peaches) and those in the Gourd family (melons). Pistachio, persimmon, peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, lettuce, camomile tea, and honey have also been reported to cause reactions in some people who are Mugwort pollen allergic.

Birch tree pollen is associated with numerous food cross reactions including celery. Cross-reactivity between celery and Birch pollen occurs more in central Europe whereas in Southern Europe celery and Mugwort reactions are more common. A Mugwort-Birch-Celery-Spice syndrome has also been described. People allergic to both Birch tree and Mugwort weed pollen may react to spices like pepper and paprika in addition to celery, carrot, and mango. Birch pollen is strongly associated with food reactions to Rosaceae family fruits (apples, apricots, peaches, pears, cherries), tree nuts (walnut, hazelnut, Brazil nut), legumes (peanut, various beans and peas), members of the Parsnip family (parsnip, parsley, anise, cumin, caraway, coriander) and the potato-nightshades (potato, tomato, peppers).

House dust mite, a serious allergen for many people, cross reacts with mangos, shellfish, bananas, melons, tomato, avocado, papaya, pineapple, peaches, Kiwi fruit and various spices. Kiwi, an unusual fruit in a class by itself, may elicit a reaction in people allergic to Birch trees, Mugwort weed pollen, and latex. The Latex-Fruit Allergy Syndrome is characterized by allergy to foods in the Rosaceae family including almond (classified as a fruit not a nut) and plums, as well as other fruits such as passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, mango, melons, and bananas. It is also associated with reactions to spices such as dill, ginger, and oregano and the nightshades, potato and tomato and chestnuts.

A few articles in scientific literature have reported associations of specific HLA gene patterns to pollen allergy and fewer still have noted HLA DR and DQ gene pattern associations with food-pollen cross-reaction syndromes. HLA DQ genetics are well known in celiac disease. There is also limited published data associating certain DQ patterns with microscopic colitis, collagenous colitis and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. HLA typing may be clinically useful in evaluation and elimination diet recommendations for suspected food allergic, intolerant or sensitive individuals. This type of information will be one of the goals of thefooddoc.com website. A table that lists the common pollens and foods that have been reported to cross-react with those pollens will be posted on the site very soon.

Though extensive research has been done and many of the protein structures contributing to these cross-reactions is known, little is known about these reactions by most of the lay public and many doctors. Seasonal pollen allergies may be associated with more severe reactions. Those with documented cross-reactions or prior OAS reactions may be at increased risk and certain HLA gene or DQ patterns may be associated. People with known or suspected pollen allergies should be aware of these possible food reactions. If you would like further help sorting out if you are intolerant or allergic to certain foods please visit http://www.thefooddoc.com in the near future to undergo a free online assessment and sign up for the online diet symptom diary, updates, and access the free educational content.

Dr. Scot Lewey, also known as "the food doc", is a board certified gastroenterologist (stomach-intestine specialist) with extensive experience in food intolerance, allergy, colitis, Crohn's disease, Celiac disease and reflux. He has been practiciing medicine for over 20 years and has participated in bench science and clinical research, authored numerous scientific articles, book chapters, and online articles for the public in his field of expertise. He has a website under development, www.thefooddoc.com, that will be launched fully very soon. It will offer various online tools and educational resources including an online symptom diet diary.
