Niemand of Davenport, Iowa, presented by Mrs. Erwin Maguire, gave the program for the afternoon. His address was "History of Chinaware." Mr. Niemand gave a very interesting discussion of bone china, porcelain earthenware, etc., discussing the different textures and decorative trends. He stated that the most of the bone china consists of 40 per cent bone and 60 per cent stone. From this we have our English bone china. Ireland produces Beeleek china. The bone could not be produced in Ireland as it was in England, therefore Ireland resorted to native products and produced a product called feldspar, which is a calcium base product corresponding to the bone produced in England. The Lennox factory in America started production from this source, 88 years ago. Many samples of china were passed around as Mr. Niemand explained that .the difference in china was the difference in the type of decoration individuals prefer. A special pattern called Rutledge, drew comment as it had its origin at Springfield, inspired by the fame of Ann Rutledge of the Abraham Lincoln's life story. Nearly all patterns go back to some historic event. Additional displays were shown of crystal and rock crystal. In closing he spoke briefly of table settings and combinations.
