Antique Olive Green Wedgwood Cream and Sugar Set Tricolor

Produced for only about 20 years from the late 1800s to about 1920, this is an olive green jasperware set. This deep green color is highly sought after by collectors precisely because of its unique qualities - really flaws - that occurred in its manufacture. The creamer measures 3 7/8" from tip of spount across handle, 3" in diameter at widest point, 1 7/8" high to top of handle. (note that the last photo shows a larger creamer listed separately). The covered sugar measures 3 3/4" diameter, 2 1/2" to top of lid, 2 1/16" diameter at base.

The reason behind the short production years is that this color, commonly referred to as "bleeding green" was hard to control. The green would bleed into the white applied relief work and often, the horizontal piping trim on these pieces, when fired, would turn a pinkish color. This phenomenon became known as "accidental" tricolor! These are the reasons that caused production to be curtailed, with the result that today they are in short supply, rarer, and very popular with collectors.

These are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
