Wedgwood Jasper by Michael Herman
Book DescriptionWedgwood Jasper predates the American Declaration of Independence by one year having been introduced to the public by Josiah Wedgwood in 1775. Of all the many types of ceramics produced by the Wedgwood Company in the last two and a half centuries, Jasper is most immediately recognizable. This second book on this fascinating subject by the author traces Jaspers long history and almost infinite variety. It covers the entire range of Wedgwood's Jasper pieces, from items of museum quality to those found in most collections. After an informative introduction to Wedgwood history and marks, the photographic delineation covers the various types: Diceware, Strapware, Sgraffito, Sage Green and Lilac on White Jasper, Jasper Mounted on Metal, Crimson Jasper, and more. This is followed by a wonderful photographic gallery, organized by shapes., including biscuit barrels, bowls, boxes, candleholders, cups and saucers, figures inkwells, jewelry, jugs and mugs, lamps, medallions, perfume bottles, plates and trays, tea and coffee sets, vases, and more. All of this is illustrated with over 750 color photos. Important private collections are featured as well as one of the finest museum collections in the United States and auction houses. Wedgwood Jasper is well represented in all the finest ceramics collections around the world.
