1997, England

Catherine the Great of Russia ordered in 1773 at Wedgwood in Barlaston, England, the production of a tableware set for 50 people with a total of 952 pieces with 1,244 different hand painted depictions. Wedgwood worked two years on this fantastic order, with interruptions, with a large team of master painters that painted 952 different country estates in England using the famous ‘Queensware’. This is very nice, cream coloured earthenware with a strong glaze, an invention of Josiah Wedgwood. As there were no photo-cameras at the time, this was sketched and painted on the spot everywhere in England, an enormous task. For the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the date of death of Josiah Wedgwood, some of the plates have been re-issued in a limited edition worldwide, including the coat of arms of Empress Catherine II of Russia.

Made in 1997. Initially sold in a worldwide production of 3,000 copies, this production run was immediately sold out. A few plates have been produced afterwards in a one-time, larger production run.
This lot contains three plates:
- Pavilion in Lord Hardwick's Park, Wimple.
- The pavilion in Kew Gardens.
- View of Derwentwater in the Lake District.
With a diameter of 227 mm and in perfect condition.
