A set of eleven Wedgwood 18th century creamware soup dishes the borders decorated with a beautiful brown necklace design, highlighted by a lively turquoise painted edge. Creamware is a cream-colored, refined earthenware with a glaze over a pale body. It was created in the mid-1700s by the potters of Staffordshire, England. Foremost among the pioneers of creamware were Thomas Whieldon and his apprentice Josiah Wedgwood. Creamware was improved in the 1760s by Josiah Wedgwood, who was the first of the English potters to produce a cream-colored earthenware with a light-colored body. Wedgwood marketed these wares as Queensware after Queen Charlotte and Catherine the Great gave Wedgwood the honor of ordering sets. As its popularity increased many of the other English potters began to make creamware as well, and it replaced salt glaze stoneware as the dinnerware of all but the high aristocracy, which most likely would have had a service of Chinese export porcelain dishes.
Circa 1790
