In my local antique mall I have noticed a lot of pink lustreware come up for sale. Now, I haven't bought any (yet), but it inspired me to go look up information about lustreware.

|It started to become commercially available around 1790. This was when the pottery companies in Staffordshire, England (so Spode and Wedgwood) figured out how to apply gold into the glaze that then turned pink. The gold iridescent pink pottery grew very popular.|

There are four principle colors of lustreware: silver/platinum, copper/brown, gold, and pink/purple.
