This Vibrant Color Fruit Design Bone China Dessert Set consists of 6 round dessert plates and a square two handled master plate and was made by the famous Wedgwood factories of Etruria, England. The cartouche mark is of the famous Portland Vase, for which Wedgwood is so famous.

This set has a beautiful translucent bone white body upon which the beautiful polychrome hand painting bounces. The elaborately hand painted enameled fruit border consists of grapes, pears, pineapples, plums and other assorted fruit with an intertwining yellow ribbon. The fruit border is framed on either side by interchanging black and white banding which gives the colorful fruit an extra bounce. Such a technique is common for the art deco period in decoration of fine porcelains. The center of each dessert plate and the center of the master plate displays a pannier or basket of fruit and flowers of bright colors.

COMMENT: This is definitely A "Wow" Set that can enhance ones after dinner dessert experience. Definitely appetizing! It also makes wonderful decoration for the china cabinet when not in use. Makes a lovely gift for any occasion!

The decoration is done in Florentine style. The bold, vibrant and bright colors with the combination of black and white are very typical of the art deco period.

PHOTOGRAPHY COMMENT: Please forgive the distortion and color of the first photo (the complete set) which is 'out of focus'.  The china appears to have a yellowish color which is not the case.  A better photo will be uploaded at a later date.

HISTORY OF WEDGWOOD FACTORIES: 

In 1906, a Wedgwood china museum was established at the Etruria pottery. A new factory was built at nearby Barlaston in 1940, and the museum was moved to and expanded at this location. The Etruria works was closed in 1950. During 1960-1970 Wedgwood acquired many English potteries, including William Adams & Sons, Coalport, Susie Cooper, Crown Staffordshire, Johnson Brothers, Mason's Ironstone, J. & G. Meakin, Midwinter Companies, Precision Studios, and Royal Tuscan. Now Wedgwood was known as The Wedgwood Group.

Wedgwood's basalt, a hard, black, stone-like material known also as Egyptian ware or basalt ware, was used for vases, candlesticks, and realistic busts of historical figures. Jasperware was his most successful innovation; it was a durable unglazed ware most characteristically blue with fine white cameo figures inspired by the ancient Roman Portland Vase. Many of the finest designs were the work of the British artist John Flaxman. The most famous artist he employed at Etruria was the sculptor John Flaxman, whose wax portraits and other relief figures he translated into jasperware.


CONDITION: Excellent! There are no knife or fork scratches, no chips, no cracks, no stains and no restorations.
