The dry-bodied pottery known as Jasperware was first developed by English potter and entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. Its unglazed matte “biscuit” finish and contrasting silhouettes of figures on a colored base (often a blue that became known as Wedgwood Blue) were so popular that the style was often copied by other potters. Wedgwood originals became highly collectible. There are many such Wedgwood Jasperware pieces of a variety of colors in the Decorative Pottery and Glass Sale from Lion and Unicorn. The entire catalog comes from a single collection and features over 150 items from Wedgwood, along with pieces from Royal Doulton, R. John Wright, Lladro, and more.
One of the featured glass pieces in the sale is a Swarovski Crystal Bear Figurine by glass artist Anton Hirzinger. The bear is of a yellow hue and comes with its original box, certificate, and Swarovski backstamp. Other glass items in the sale include a Lalique arabesque amber vase, a frosted glass Fougeres clock, and a Les Enfants crystal shot glass. There are also items from Waterford, Jonathan Winfisky, Harrods, and others. To view any of these lots and register to bid, visit Lion and Unicorn.
