Description: Toronto: Royal Ontario Museum, 2009. 18cm., pbk., 200pp., 106 color illus. Exhibition catalogue. Publisher's summary : Wedgwood has long been the gold standard in ceramics, an exemplar of English craftsmanship famed for its iconic blue-and-white patterns and unique glazes, and for the company's leading role in the industrialization of what was once an artisan trade, which so revolutionized the English ceramics industry in the eighteenth century. In commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Josiah Wedgwood's founding of the world-famous china and crystal production house, this volume features nearly 100 examples of the finest Wedgwood holdings from the Royal Ontario Museum's collection. Included are well-loved classics such as pieces of "Queen's Ware" from the table of Catherine the Great, copies of the famed "Portland Vase," a black basalt relief that weighs over 800 pounds, exquisite cameo medallions and jewelry, and examples of contemporary Wedgwood pieces.
