Perhaps being the most famous dinnerware brand in the world, Wedgwood was founded by Josiah Wedgwood in 1759. Josiah was a very good businessman and also a very innovative person. He devised many techniques of making earthenware and porcelain dinnerware. His first great success was selling an earthenware set of dinnerware to Queen Charlotte. The earthenware, with its creamy colour has since been called ‘Queensware’ and is still the cornerstone of Wedgwood’s production. Another famous invention of Josiah was Jasperware, combining different colours of stoneware to create a, often classical scene.
Wedgwood today stands for a very wide variety of dinnerware. From very fine bone china, to everyday Queensware and from very detailed Jasperware to beautiful porcelain collectibles.
