Stoneware has existed in some form or another since 500 B.C. It is a hard, non-porous, high-fire ceramic that falls between earthenware and porcelain. Back when it was first invented it was traded among the Chinese. Eventually, it became commonly used in Europe and, by the 16th Century, it was brought over by colonists to America.

With the advent of Capitalism, removing price stickers and the glue residue that they leave behind have become part of the purchasing process. Removing these stickers is an easy process.
