Top 20 Best-Selling Wedgwood Patterns!
Wedgwood is one of the oldest and most respected companies producing china today. In 1759, Josiah Wedgwood established himself as an independent potter at the “Ivy House Works” in Burslem, England. During his first 10 years in business, Wedgwood made many refinements in the production processes for porcelain dinnerware. One of his most important creations was black basalt, a fine-grained stoneware superior to any that had been previously produced. Another watershed Wedgwood creation was creamware. Fired at higher temperatures than traditional English earthenware, creamware was non-porous, extremely durable, and relatively inexpensive. Wedgwood’s crowning achievement was Jasperware, non-glazed porcelain featuring classical figures in bas-relief, now virtually synonymous with the Wedgwood name. Today, Wedgwood remains a market leader in the tableware industry. The popular patterns below are great examples of the culture of quality that has been present at Wedgwood for more than 250 years.
1 - Runnymede-Blue by Wedgwood China
Named for the site of the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, Runnymede-Blue features a pink shell design – collecting shells was Josiah Wedgwood’s personal passion; he often used the organic shapes from shells in new pattern designs.
2 - Kutani Crane by Wedgwood China
The beautiful design of Kutani Crane shows a strong Asian influence; to the Chinese, cranes are symbols of longevity – the blue crane depicted here indicates life well into old age, strongly valued and venerated in Chinese culture.
3 - Edme by Wedgwood China
