Wedgwood (Etruria) (1-21)
The Wedgwood family was working at Burslem in the 17th century. Josiah was the first to gain fame, having started potting in 1739. Established at Burslem in 1759. Introduced Cream Ware in 1761. Produced black basaltes from 1766. Two years later he went into partnership with Thomas Bentley. Invented Jasper ware in 1775. It is doubtful if Josiah I made any other than experimental pieces of Jasper during his partnership with Bentley. Josiah II produced much of this ware. Bentley died in 1780. John, Josiah II and Thomas were Wedgwood's partners in 1790. He died in 1795. There were at least seven, if not twice that many, Wedgwoods working at the same time as Josiah I. Many used the mark "Wedgwood" for their wares. (See notice under Sunderland). The Etruria works were opened about 1770. It is doubtful if many pieces were marked between 1759 and 1769. Porcelain was made from 1812 and to 1816 and from 1878. The Wedgwood factory still operates today under the name Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Ltd. 1-6 Wedgwood & Bentley. 1769-1780.
7-11 These marks impressed were used from before Bentley's partnership until the latter half of the 19th century. See 16.
