WHY WE LOVE IT: It’s so understated yet so elegant!
We are pleased to offer these glorious Wedgwood creamware dinner dishes decorated with a border featuring gold chevrons set between two enameled blue lines. The beauty of the creamware is enhanced by the golden herringbone decoration. Made circa 1820 the gold chevrons along the border are quintessentially Regency period in style.
The creamware body has a warm look and the elegant gold chevron decoration along the border adds to the more formal Regency style. I feel this makes the set more modern in feel. The dishes have the warmth and relaxed elements for a country home, but also enough of a classic and formal feel that they would work well for a home in the city.
This pattern was first introduced by Wedgwood in the 18th century. The juxtaposition of the soft creamware and the geometric golden ornament along the border is a beautiful combination.

Creamware is the name given to a type of earthenware pottery which is made from white clays from Dorset and Devonshire combined with an amount of calcined flint. Creamware was first produced in England some time before 1740. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware in the Staffordshire Potteries was Thomas Whieldon. He produced a wide variety of creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754-1759, and when Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to the development of creamware.
Josiah Wedgwood’s creamware gained recognition when King George III and his consort, Queen Charlotte decided to favor local artisans to boost the country’s economy. A tea set was presented to the palace in the last quarter of 1765. Wedgwood then renamed his creamware pottery “Queensware.” In the late 18th and early 19th century Wedgwood Queensware was the first English pottery which for elegance and perfection of potting could compete successfully with the porcelain production of the European continent.
