Wedgwood Dark Olive Green Jasper Jardiniere, 1925


Wedgwood dark olive green Jasper Jardiniere or garden pot features the bas-reliefs of 5 of the 9 Muses. The Muses, the personification of knowledge, literature, dance and music, were the nine daughters of Zeus. Modeled by John Flaxman in 1776. This medium sized garden pot measures 9, diameter x 8, tall and is marked ‘Wedgwood England’ which generally dates the piece to between the McKinley Tariff Act of 1891 and Wedgwood abandoning the ‘England’ only mark in 1905, for most general production pieces. The use of the ‘England’ only mark continued for some production after 1905, especially circa 1920-1930, with pieces made by Harry Barnard and Bert Bentley, including crimson, olive green and Sgraffito. Dark olive green dip was used only from circa 1920-1930, when Wedgwood was under the guidance of Harry Barnard and Bert Bentley. Just like Crimson Dip, dark olive green dip was made in very limited numbers due to the dip color bleeding into the white bas-reliefs.

About Wedgwood (Manufacturer)

Arguably the most celebrated of all English ceramics makers, Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by Staffordshire potter Josiah Wedgwood (1730-1795). The company is famed for its Jasperware — molded Neoclassical stoneware vases, plates and other pieces, inspired by ancient cameo glass, featuring white figures, scenes and decorative elements set in relief on a matte colored background. The best-known background hue is light blue, but Wedgwood’s iconic silhouettes also appear on green, lilac, yellow, black and even white grounds. Some pieces use three or more colors.

     The Wedgwood firm first came to prominence for its tableware, which quickly gained favor in aristocratic households throughout Britain and Europe. In 1765, Wedgwood was commissioned to create a cream-colored earthenware service for Queen Charlotte, consort of King George III. The queen was so thrilled with her new china that Wedgwood was given permission to call himself “Potter to Her Majesty,” and the decorative style became known as Queen’s Ware. Not to be outdone, Catherine the Great of Russia commissioned her own set of Wedgwood china in 1773. Nearly 200 years later, the firm created a 1,200-piece service for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. In recent years, leading designers including Jasper Conran and Vera Wang have collaborated with Wedgwood — in the tradition of such distinguished 18th century artists such as the painter George Stubbs and metalsmith Matthew Boulton.

     From plates and other dinnerware to decorative items like urns, cachepots and candlesticks, Wedgwood designs lend a traditional air to Anglophile interiors. And even if you have to make your own tea, you may find it comforting to sip it from a delicate cup that was manufactured in the same Stoke-on-Trent kiln that produced Her Majesty’s tea service. Be sure to keep your pinky raised.
