Wedgwood Pottery Photos

Josiah Wedgwood and Sons pottery was founded in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood. Wedgwood is best known for blue, green or black plates, cups and vases with white bisque decor, though the company made a wide-range of other products. Wedgwood produced historical commemorative plates for the American market which are themselves collectors' items.
