Here's a WEDGWOOD JASPERWARE BISCUIT JAR believed to be from the late 18th century, c1785. It is light green jasperware and the mark at the base is the impressed WEDGWOOD mark introduced in about 1769. The mark is the straight line all cap.
Variety, with serifs, and made from a single die. There are two isolated very small other marks, a hand scratched X at one edge (photo 7) and another tiny figure to the lower right in the WEDGEWOOD mark.. Possibly a reverse impression of a 1 (photo 6).The decoration is women, children (putti)/animals and vegetation. Height of the pottery is about 5-1/4" and a diameter of about 6" at widest. The top consists of a metal ring with attached handle and lid. The handle is beaded and the lid has an ornate embossed ring of stars.
There are no marks found on the metal which is likely pewter. It has not been cleaned (nor has the pottery) and it does have some scratching on the rim of the lid and a small dent on the ring. The pottery and the jasper surfaces all appear to be flawless (though it could use some cleaning).
For its age, the piece is in remarkably excellent condition. The item "WEDGWOOD 18th C. JASPERWARE BISCUIT JAR, WOMEN/CHILDREN, METAL LID/RING/HANDLE" is in sale since Thursday, October 23, 2014. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Pottery & China\China & Dinnerware\Wedgwood".
