1995, England

The world famous factory of Josiah Wedgwood in England received an immense order in 1773 from Empress Catherine the Great of Russia for the production of a tableware set for 50 people with 1,244 hand painted images of estates and castles in England on a total of 952 pieces. A very large order, certainly given the fact that there were no photo-cameras or cars then and the painters had to make the images on the spot.
So 952 small paintings on ‘Queensware’, the Wedgwood developed, cream coloured earthenware of high quality, that was allowed this qualification after a delivery to the English court. Also the ovens weren’t as modern as today, actually quite primitive.
For the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the date of death of Josiah Wedgwood (the founder of the factory), Wedgwood made, in 1995, a very limited production run of some of the pieces for one more time.
This dish depicts the home of Josiah Wedgwood in Etruria/Staffordshire in a beautiful slanting landscape.
Josiah Wedgwood was a very progressive industrialist for his time, who had a small channel dug to transport his tableware, though also to unlock the area and help it develop. Those channels weren’t too wide and special narrow boats were developed which still sail today. This channel is pictured in the foreground, complete with boat.
