Over 200 years ago, Josiah Wedgwood developed a secret recipe for his signature jasperware pottery. This new style of stoneware was matte, unglazed, and dipped in color. Decorated with accents and figures, the baby blue and white jasperware has become a cornerstone of Wedgwood’s offerings. Built over several decades, it includes vases, teacups, decorative arts, and various sculptures. The upcoming the Starr Collection: A Legacy of Connoisseurship auction features one of the largest collections of Wedgwood items of English Ceramics presented by Stair.
Another Wedgwood innovation, the creamware dominated the early 19th century. A group of creamware glazed dishes that includes a large jug, several dishes, a sauce tureen, will be available in the upcoming auction. Also of interest are several pâte-sur-pâte vases that follow various artistic movements. An olive-green vase is decorated in the Art Nouveau style with flowers and butterflies while a navy-blue vase sports cupids and grapevines.
Beyond the porcelain and ceramics, this sale will also offer several pieces of fine art and furniture. A lithograph print of Joan Mirό’s Je travaille comme un jardinier is highlighted, as well as several Art Nouveau marquetry tables.
