Wedgwood Jasperware Miniature Urns Pair, 20th Century

8.5 x 8 cm

Experimental and radical aren’t adjectives one would apply to most notions of Wedgwood, I mean isn’t it something your Nanna loved and collected? Founded in the 18th century by the “radical potter” Josiah Wedgwood these wares marry science and style, technology and entrepreneurialism. The crisp classical scenes on this pair of miniature urns may seem to be the essence of antique but their production and process were exemplars of the Industrial Revolution and the enduring popularity of this innovative style.
