Nautilus Centerpiece by Wedgwood
| Josiah Wedgwood, founder of Wedgwood China in England in the mid-1700s, was a conchologist. That is, he was very interested in the study and classification of seashells. Josiah was a regular on the beaches of England, always searching for rare shells to add to his collection and to use as subjects for modeling new dinnerware patterns and pieces. A great example of the seashell heritage at Wedgwood is evident in one of this month’s special features, a centerpiece in the Nautilus pattern by Wedgwood. This centerpiece is made from white bone china and is designed in the form of a beautiful nautilus shell resting on a reef pedestal. The Nautilus centerpiece works very well with a large number of white or cream-colored china patterns. Wedgwood first created the Nautilus pattern to provide shell-themed accent pieces for the very popular Oceanside whiteware china pattern. Oceanside features traditional dinnerware shapes that are accented with embossed seashells. Follow the links below to order this and other pieces in the Nautilus pattern and to learn more about Wedgwood.
