This lovely blue dinner plate in the Countryside pattern was made by Enoch Wedgwood and is marked: Countryside / Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) LTD. England / Trade Mark / Founded in 1835 / Genuine Hand Engraving Decorated Underglaze / Detergent and Acid Resisting Colors.
Since the 1930's, the Wedgwood pottery has been producing plates in sets of twelve for schools, colleges and universities.
Wedgwood was founded on May 1, 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood who worked with the established potter Thomas Whieldon until 1759 when relatives leased him the Ivy House in Burslem, allowing him to start his own pottery business.
In 1765 Wedgwood created a new earthenware form which impressed the then English Queen consort Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz who gave permission to call it Queen's Ware; this new form sold extremely well across Europe.
In 1812 Wedgwood produced their own bone china which, though not a commercial success at first eventually became an important part of an extremely profitable business.
In 1987 it merged with Waterford Crystal to create Waterford Wedgwood, an Ireland-based luxury brands group. After the 2009 purchase by KPS Capital, Wedgwood became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton. Wedgwood is still used as a generic term to describe the company's main products.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites
