Item has been in family for a very long time. Jasperware, or jasper ware, is a type of pottery first developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s.
Usually described as stoneware, some authorities have described it as a type of porcelain. It is noted for its matte and unglazed biscuit finish and is produced in a number of different colours, of which the best known is a pale blue that has become known as Wedgwood Blue.Relief decorations are characteristic of Wedgwood jasperware. They are produced in moulds and applied to the ware as sprigs. IN RELATION TO THE MARK ON THIS ITEM.
In 1769 the work of Josiah's partnership with his cousin, Thomas Wedgwood for the manufacture of useful wares is impressed with this mark made with a slug. After the death of his partner Bentley in 1781(see marks below) this mark was used instead of the'Wedgwood & Bentley' marks.
The mark was used on both useful and decorative pieces. This impressed mark remains the usual mark until the adoption of the sans serif version in 1929.
