1997, England

Empress Catherine the Great of Russia gave an enormous order to Wedgwood Barlaston, England, in 1773 for the production of a tableware set for 50 people with a total of 952 pieces and with 1,244 hand painted depictions of country estates and castles in England. A large team of master painters have worked on this for two years in a time without cars or photo-cameras.
This implicates that all England was travelled to draw and paint these buildings and landscapes, an enormous task. For the occasion of the anniversary of the 200th date of death of founder Josiah Wedgwood, a few plates from the ‘Frog’ set were produced again in a limited edition, with the coat of arms of Catherine the Great with the green frog (the castle of Catherine the Great was in the middle of a large swamp with an enormous amount of frogs).

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:
- View of Chepstow Castle in Momonthshire.
- View of Wilton Castle, Herefordshire.
- View of a part of Earl Gower's park at Trentham.
With a diameter of 227 mm.
In perfect condition.
