Not glass but made for Whitefriars
« on: July 08, 2010, 11:24:33 AM »
Anyone know the story with this?

I Have two of them in a presentation box although I think it was designed for one. They seam to be smallish saucers, did they come with glass cups? seems odd.

Around 1906, Whitefriars commissioned  Wedgwood  tableware to complement their glassware, not sure how long this continued but in 1910 Wedgwood transferred their showroom to "merge" with Whitefriars.  I don't know much about other designs, but yours is illustrated in the Museum of London book and described as "hand painted revived eighteenth century borders"

And I gave my wee brother a plate with exactly the same markings on the base - the plate itself is a Daisy Makaig-Jones bleu-souffle background with a gilded dragon. 
Not the sort of thing you'd put into everyday use.
