This formula was expensive to manufacture and Wedgwood soon developed an alternative – the jasper dip, or surface jasper.
Creil ware was made in the Oise, France area between 17.
This particular plate is from the Montereau area and was manufactured between about 18.
It should also be noted that this was the time when fake marks began appearing, which can be identified by the ability to mar them with a sharp object fairly easily.
Jasper dip and solid jasper are two different kinds of Wedgwood jasperware.
Wedgwood, one of the world’s most successful potteries, was founded by Josiah Wedgwood, who was considered a cripple by his brother and was forbidden to work at the family business. The company used a variety of marks, including Wedgwood, Wedgwood & Bentley, Wedgwood & Sons, and Wedgwood's Stone China.
A large variety of wares has been made, including the well-known jasperware, basalt, creamware, and even a limited amount of porcelain.This so-called “sprigging” technique was already familiar to potters of the time.We know you can tell we are mainly in the Wedgwood business, however when we closed our brick & mortar shop we stored our remaining non-Wedgwood merchandise and now are offering ANTIQUE, VINTAGE, COLLECTIBLE AND DECORATIVE ITEMS on our Alexis Antiques website.The iconography of the original black-and-white cameo-cut glass vessel remains a mystery, though many interpretations have been offered.A recent theory is that the frieze depicts (as the vessel is turned) Peleus entering to meet Thetis in the presence of her parents and Aphrodite and that the vase was made as a wedding present for the Emperor Augustus's daugher Julia on her marriage to Marcus Claudius Marcellus, her cousin, in 25 B. Wedgwood continued to issue editions of the vase throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.Although Josiah was the first prominent pottery maker to endorse each piece with a mark bearing his own name, knowing how to date Wedgwood is still quite tricky.
