Item Details

  • Period:
    20th Century
  • Origin:
 This rare and remarkable Wedgwood coffee pot is crafted of the renowned company's celebrated black basalt. Not only comprised of one of Wedgwood's signature inventions, this pot also boasts the classical bas relief ornamentation the makes Wedgwood pottery so distinctive.

Josiah Wedgwood began production of black basalt in 1768, and it soon became one of the company's most popular wares. His invention was a marked improvement on the stained earthenware known as "Egyptian black" made by other Staffordshire potters. Wedgwood also outperformed his competitors by creating black basalt versions of antique vases using the ancient vases themselves as his models.

Impressed mark "WEDGWOOD/ MADE IN ENGLAND/ D 24"Circa 1927
