A fine quality, 18th century, Wedgwood jasper dip coffee pot and cover. This is marked “WEDGWOOD”, beneath which is a large letter “A”, and it dates from c.1790. The letter A is a workman’s mark. It was part of a large tea and coffee service, most of which is decorated with the signs of the Zodiac. We have split the service and are selling all items individually. Many other items can be seen on our website.
The coffee pot is decorated with a wide band of scrolls and flowers and there is a central cartouche depicting Virgo, the virgin. This is bordered by two different foliate borders. The lid is decorated with a band of oak leaves and acorns. Both the white jasperware and the relief decoration are of the finest quality, typical of the eighteenth century. Unfortunately the finial on the lid has been restored and is a replacement. There is also a crack in the lower section of the body of the pot. Both of these faults can be seen in the images.
