Jasperware was first invented in 1770 by Josiah Wedgwood. The word ‘jasper’ stems from the mineral used to create it. This example, crafted in Wedgwood blue, received its colour by adding cobalt oxide. Its matt finish offsets beautifully against the white figures in relief, which are characteristic for Jasperware. At this, John Flaxman, the Neo-Classical designer and sculptor was associated with Wedgwood from 1775 and supplied his designs in wax, to be applied to the blue, green and black grounds.
Both stamped Wedgwood.
