Wedgwood was established by Josiah Wedgwood in 1959 at Stoke-on-Trent in England. Wedgwood is known for the great palette of different forms of ceramics than just the standard porcelain, as we know it from continental Europe. Wedgwood is therefore a good expression of the difference between English and European porcelain. Many of the plates below are produced in Jasperware, which was developed by Wedgwood and is characterized by a surface that is very similar to bisquit (unglazed porcelain) and reliefs that decorate this surface. Jasperware is usually seen in blue with white reliefs. It gives memories of classical art, which had become popular when Jasperware was originally introduced.
