Set of Wedgwood creamware dishes made in the 18th century with a border in the distinctive, geometric, pattern known as "Etruscan". This Wedgwood pattern was painted in red, green, or yellow enamels. The yellow seen here is the rarest of the colors. The service would have been made to order. The border decoration is enhanced by a crest with a winged dragon holding a sword. The center of the dish has the initials of the owner "JW". The set was made circa 1785.
Etruscan is a neoclassical pattern.  Neoclassical design has its roots in the Greek and Roman archaeological discoveries in the 18th century.
In this set we have a dozen soup dishes which measure 9.85 inches in diameter. Price: $3400 for the dozen.
We also have a pair of large platters which measure 19.5 inches x 14.5 inches. Price: $600 for each platter
Creamware was created in the 1760s by Josiah Wedgwood who was the first of the English potters to produce a cream colored earthenware with a light colored body. Wedgwood marketed these wares as Queensware after Queen Charlotte gave Wedgwood the honor of ordering a set. As its popularity increased many of the other English potters began to make creamware as well, and it replaced
saltglaze stoneware as the dinner ware of all but the high aristocracy which most likely would have had a service of Chinese export porcelains.
Reference: To see similar plates with a red enameled border see Christie's Dumfries House sale Volume II lot 356. Dumfries is a Palladian country house in Scotland. It is now a museum that enjoys the patronage of the Prince of Wales. After the Christie's sale the plates were returned to Dumfries House where they are now on display.
