Very Early DAVID GARRICK Antique WEDGWOOD Jasper Ware PORTRAIT MEDALLION Plaque. Portrait medallion of DAVID GARRICK, solid blue jasper, white relief.Garrick, whilst playing at Covent Garden drew so many of its patrons away from Drury Lane that he was admitted a partner in the latter theatre on equal terms. Mention is made of the medallion by Wedgwood writing to Bentley in London on 26 November 1777: Hackwood has had a Garrick & Shakespeare upon the stocks several months, but before he has half finished the things he is about orders, come for other new articles. " By the end of December the medallion was presumably finished as Josiah wrote to Bentley: "I cannot resist the temptation of showing my dear friend our new Shakespeare & Garrick though they are not so well fired as they should be, we put these into our common biscuit oven you will see by looking under the shoulder of each that these heads are modeled by W.
Hackwood, but I shall prevent him exposing himself again now I have found it out. Backside of medallion is impressed: WEDGWOOD (with small impressed "O" below). Measures 4" x 5 1/4" and loosely displayed in oval wood frame, as found.
