Table of Contents

A lavishly illustrated collectors volume, this book is a wonderful introduction to the historic and ever-popular line of Wedgwood ceramics called Jasper Ware. The bas-reliefs on matte porcelain grounds make these products instantly recognizable. Featuring fine pieces from private and museum collections, it has been written especially for novice and moderately advanced collectors and concentrates on pieces produced mostly from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries.

Included are chapters on Wedgwood Jasper history, colors, and marks as well as supplements about Wedgwood Jasper jewelry and the classical mythology used for the bas-relief figures. A significant portion of the book illustrates many of the hundreds of shapes that Wedgwood produced, including biscuit barrels, bud vases, candlesticks, cruet sets, bowls, inkwells, and jardinieres, to name only a few. Over 500 vivid photographs illustrate these shapes, and detailed information as well as current values are included in each caption.

This is an important book about a time period in Wedgwood Jasper history that has not been researched before. It will be a welcomed addition to the library of all Wedgwood Jasper enthusiasts.
