Jasper-ware is a fine-grained unglazed stone-ware that was first introduced by Josiah Wedgwood in 1775. Decorations, in the Neoclassical style and usually white, were made in separate moulds and applied to the body of the piece. Objects made of jasper were varied and included vases, plaques, tableware, cameos, furniture mounts, and portrait medallions. Jasper-ware is still produced Wedgwood.
This lovely pair of posy vases, circa 1950-1960, are wedgwood blue and lilac. Both are decorated with identical classical designs around the top of the vase and a laurel leaf wreath around the base. Impressed "Wedgwood" and "Made In England" separated marks which was used from 1908-1969. They measure 3 1/4" in height and 2 3/4" across the top. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint condition.
