A fabulous set of four Wedgwood tiles depicting courses of a meal. Each one is transfer printed in blue and they are marked to the reverse “JOSIAH WEDGWOOD & SONS ETRURIA”. They date from c.1880. Each one is titled, and also has a motto. We have :
“FISH. MAY GOOD DIGESTION WAIT ON APPETITE”,
“MUTTON. EAT THY FOOD WITH A THANKFUL HEART”,
“VENISON. EAT TO LIVE NOT LIVE TO EAT” and
“PASTRY. A LITTLE PUDDING ADDS TO THE REPAST”.
This is a delightful series and we have never come across them before.
Generally they are in very good condition but Pastry does have two very tiny chips to the rim.
Dimensions: Each tile is 15.3cm square by 1cm. deep.
Price includes postage within the U.K. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £20. Most of Western Europe add £10.
