ProvenanceThis item has been researched by Katerina Kollectibles staff to show the production was done in December of 1862. The backstamp, impressed that reads "DHQ", means that "D" is for December, "H" is for the potter who made/decorated/threw the piece (possibly√Čmile-Aubert Lessore design), and Q indicates a production of either 1888 or 1862. Using deductive reasoning, the spear-like stamp called a "Diamond Mark" which is present on this piece--although faded/worn and unreadable--indicates that it was produced in 1862. The Diamondperiod was between 1842-1883, when the British Patent Office issued a diamond mark along with the registration number when a design was registered.As well as showing that the design had been registered, diamond mark offered the buyer the reassurance of knowing an item was of British design. It also assured the person registering the design a degree of protection from copying. The protection was dependent on the type of material and the class in which the product was placed.The mark was created to identify the type of material used (known as the class), how many items were included, (sometimes known as bundles or packages, and the date of registration.Note that the registration number does not form part of the mark.The centre is occupied by the abbreviation Rd signifying that this is a Patent Office mark standing for Registered Design.
Wedgwood was an early adopter of the English invention of transfer printing, which allowed printed designs, for long only in a single color, that were far cheaper than hand-painting. Hand-painting was still used, the two techniques often being combined, with painted borders surrounding a printed figure scene. From 1761 wares were shipped to Liverpool for the specialist firm of Sadler and Green to print; later this was done in-house at Stoke.
From 1769 Wedgwood maintained a workshop for overglaze enamel painting by hand in Little Cheyne Row in Chelsea, London, where skilled painters were easier to find. The pieces received a light second firing to fix the enamels in a small muffle kiln; this work was also later moved to Stoke. There was also a showroom and shop in Portland House, 12 Greek Street, Soho, London. Painting included border patterns or bands and relatively straightforward floral motifs on tableware. Complicated figure scenes and landscapes in painted enamels were generally reserved for the most expensive "ornaments" like vases, but transfer printed items such as this item had these.
About Wedgwood Pottery"Wedgwood is an English fine china, porcelain and luxury accessories manufacturer that was founded on 1 May 1759[ by the potter and entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood and was first incorporated in 1895 as Josiah Wedgwood and Sons Ltd. It was rapidly successful and was soon one of the largest manufacturers of Staffordshire pottery, "a firm that has done more to spread the knowledge and enhance the reputation of British ceramic art than any other manufacturer", exporting across Europe as far as Russia, and to the Americas. It was especially successful at producing fine earthenware and stoneware that were accepted as equivalent in quality to porcelain (which Wedgwood only made later) but were considerably cheaper.
Wedgwood is especially associated with the "dry-bodied" (unglazed) stoneware Jasperware in contrasting colors, and in particular that in "Wedgwood blue" and white, always much the most popular colors, though there are several others. Jasperware has been made continuously by the firm since 1775, and also much imitated. In the 18th century, however, it was table china in the refined earthenware creamware that represented most of the sales and profits.In the later 19th century, it returned to being a leader in design and technical innovation, as well as continuing to make many of the older styles. Despite increasing local competition in its export markets, the business continued to flourish in the 19th and early 20th centuries, remaining in the hands of the Wedgwood family, but after World War II it began to contract, along with the rest of the English pottery industry.
After buying a number of other Staffordshire ceramics companies, in 1987 Wedgwood merged with Waterford Crystal to create Waterford Wedgwood plc, an Ireland-based luxury brands group. After a 2009 purchase by KPS Capital Partners, a New York-based private equity firm, the group became known as WWRD Holdings Limited, an initialism for "Waterford Wedgwood Royal Doulton". This was acquired in July 2015 by Fiskars, a Finnish consumer goods company."
