Wedgwood 18th Century Pierced Creamware with Painted Decoration England C-1785


This Wedgwood pierced creamware dish was made at the Wedgwood factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1785. The elegant piercings are hand-made. The cavetto is decorated with a band of eye-catching red up-down squiggles. The edge of the plate is decorated with a thin band of brown slip. The overall effect is exquisite! This plate is one of my favorites.

Background of Wedgwood Creamware

Creamware is the name given to a type of earthenware pottery made from white clays from Dorset and Devonshire combined with an amount of calcined flint. Creamware was first produced in England sometime before 1740. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware in the Staffordshire potteries was Thomas Whieldon. He created a wide variety of creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754-1759. When Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to develop creamware. Many of the Staffordshire potteries learned from Whieldon and Wedgwood and developed their own creamware product.
