Wedgwood Pink Jasper Ware Acanthus Plate

A fine and unusual Wedgewood Jasperware plate made in the mid-1980s for the Wedgwood Collectors Society, for whom so many unusual Jasper items in interesting colors were made.

This is a pink and white Acanthus Plate, made in an edition of 1000. It's decorated with large, curved acanthus leaves, based on Wedgwood designs from the 1820s, and (unusually) a bee and a fly. The first several generations of the Wedgwood family were very interested in the natural world, which spilled over into the ware produced by the pottery.

The acanthus leaves, which are beautifully detailed, are also executed in extremely high relief for a piece of Jasper.

The plate is 6" in diameter.

Condition: as new, no wear or damage.

Mark: impressed Wedgwood marks. It isn't marked with the WCS backstamp, but not all WCS items are. It is listed in WCS literature in our reference files.
