Wedgwood (England) Jasperware in Lilac, Trinket Dish and Miniature Round Box | Circa 1959-64
The Wedgwood story began in 1759 when the founder, Josiah Wedgwood started as an independent potter in Burslem, England. Fast forward over 260 years and they’re still producing many of the materials he invented, such as Jasper, Queen’s Ware and Black Basalt.
Jasperware is a type of pottery first developed by Wedgwood in the 1770s. Usually described as stoneware, it has an unglazed matte "biscuit" finish and is produced in a number of different colours, of which the most common and best known is a pale blue that has become known as Wedgwood Blue.
Relief decorations in contrasting colours (typically in white but also in other colours) are characteristic of jasperware, giving a cameo effect.
