This week saw the sale of several Wedgwood collections, all in the Jasperware style; a technique developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the late 1700’s. It is an unglazed form of pottery often called biscuit, due to it’s dry looking finish as opposed to wetter looking gloss glazes more typical of the time. The ground or base is overlayed with sprigs of white decorations often in classical designs. It became popular shortly after it’s release, copied by several potteries and manufacturers who put their own spin on the technique. Wedgwood still produce the Jasperware line to this day and it can be found in an array of colours.
This week we sold an urn (lot 12) in the traditional Wedgwood blue colourway. This and other auction highlights follow.
