About Wedgwood – Rare pre 1940 Edme – Square Plate
Edme is without doubt Wedgwood’s most famous and most recognizable shape. Although the company was about to celebrate it’s 150th birthday when Edme was designed in 1908 the simple classic shape and creamy colour have become synonymous with the Wedgwood brand.
Edme was designed by John Goodwin for the French retailer Pannier Frères and was soon also sold by Wedgwood directly.
The popularity of Edme exploded in the post war period, when it was bought by people looking for dinnerware that was both simple and formal and which could be used both everyday and on special occasions.
Edme is always made of cream coloured earthenware also called queensware or creamware.
