Early English WEDGWOOD Sage Green Jasperware Greek Classical Plaque Platter Tray. Josiah Wedgwood and Sons, commonly known as Wedgwood, is a fine china, porcelain, and luxury accessories company founded on 1 May 1759 by English potter and entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood.
The company is renowned worldwide for its' luxury Jasperware creations. Jasperware is a type of pottery first developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. Usually described as stoneware, it has an unglazed matte "biscuit" finish and is produced in a number of different colors, of which the most common and best known is a pale blue that has become known as Wedgwood Blue.Relief decorations in contrasting colors (typically in white but also in other colors) are characteristic of jasperware, giving a cameo effect. The reliefs are produced in molds and applied to the ware as sprigs. The piece is only marked on the bottom edge "2792" (no word "Wedgwood" though it clearly is their work). This fabulous plaque, along with many other Wedgwood pieces, all came from the collection of a prominent Providence family. Item(s) will be professionally packed to prevent damage in transit.
