Speaking of out-of-the-ordinary gifts, we feature a favorite from our collectibles inventory this month – genuine Jasperware ornaments from Wedgwood China. Our Wedgwood Jasperware selection this month includes ornaments from series like “Twelve Days of Christmas-Pierced,” “Our New Home,” and others in a variety of Jasperware colors!
Jasperware, non-glazed porcelain featuring classical figures in bas-relief, is virtually synonymous with the Wedgwood name. Founder Josiah Wedgwood conducted thousands of experiments, seeking to develop a material that would enable him to take advantage of a rapidly growing market for reproductions in bas-relief of Greco-Roman art. Wedgwood worked on the project from 1770 to 1774, and wrote to a friend after a series of less-than-successful experiments, “I am almost crazy.” But on January 1, 1775, Wedgwood announced that he had achieved his goal, and introduced the Jasperware material into production within a few months after his New Year’s Day announcement.
The Jasperware gifts here represent a great way to start, or add to, an existing Jasperware collection.
