An antique Wedgwood Rosso Antico stoneware pitcher made in England in the mid-19th century. Josiah Wedgwood developed Rosso Antico, literally "old red," a red-colored stoneware that was similar to pieces excavated from ancient Pompeii and Herculanuem. The color replicates the excavated ceramics from Roman ruins which were capturing the imagination of British connoisseurs. Inspired by Mediterranean cultures, the form has an elegant simplicity that seems almost modern. The outside matte surface is a glowing burnt orange, strongly contrasting with the deep mahogany glaze of the interior. Dimensions: 6.75 inches in height x 5.5 inches wide x 5.75 inches deep Condition: Excellent Price: $865 Background Josiah Wedgwood termed his version of red stone ware Rosso Antico, literally “old red.” Wedgwood refined the common red ware, and started production as early as 1765 in small quantities. At the request of his partner Thomas Bentley, production resumed in 1776. Rosso Antico production continued until, circa 1900.
