The firm of Wedgwood have been in existence for 250 years. In 1759 Josiah Wedgwood started his career which led him to be remembered as the 'Father of English Potters'. The jewellery is made of unglazed vitreous fine stoneware called jasper ware - the blue colour being the most famous. The classical designs were particularly associated with the neoclassical designs of John Flaxman. Most of the Wedgwood I sell is post 1970 and is stamped with a single stamp - Wedgwood Made in England. Previous to that the Wedgwood and the Made in England were separate marks. The jewellery is made in gold, silver and in gold plate and silver plate. Copies are made - so watch out - but usually stamped 'Wedgewood' (ie with the extra 'e').
