Josiah Wedgwood introduced Jasperware in the 1770’s and Black Basalt in the 1760’s. Wedgwood creations have been famous, ever since, and the company is well known for its unique process of applying designs, in relief, to solid color dishes and other items. The appliqué is usually made of a contrasting color - usually white - but less frequently, it is monochromatic or made of Black Basalt. This collector’s piece is part of a mid century, limited edition series.
This fine little dish could be enjoyed on a bureau, on its own or for pocket change or rings. It is also useful on a desk for paperclips or simply hung on a wall to be enjoyed for the piece of artwork it is. This item comes with an attached hanger.
