This gorgeous dark blue and white Wedgwood with cupids in white relief was personally selected by Kennard Laurence Wedgwood, in 1938, as a "fine example of early Wedgwood style". This is documented by the seller's grandfather in his personal inventory listing. According to his notes, the sale took place at Ovington's in New York. After agreeing on this piece, Kennard signed the back of the saucer for the buyer. The saucer is 5 ¼" wide; the cup height is 2 ¾".
Kennard (1873-1949) was the son of Laurence Wedgwood. In 1906 he came to the United States and set up the firms' New York office, which became Josiah Wedgwood and Sons USA, an incorporated subsidiary in 1919.
Accepting Kennard's recommendation, I offer you now this gorgeous cup and saucer to add to your personal collection of fine Jasperware by Wedgwood. It is certainly a Treasure from History!
