These pieces represent some of the first and most complete examples of the 'Useful Wares' that marked the early days of Josiah Wedgwood as a leading pottery manufacturer. Basket shapes were amongst the earliest shapes produced by Wedgwood and A Twig Basket is shown as design number 28 of his '1817' catalog.
The Wedgwood and Bentley collection embodies the Wedgwood tradition, revisited and interpreted with a modern approach. Meticulously handcrafted in England by highly skilled craftsmen, each piece is a unique work of art.
After an enthusiastic courtship on Wedgwood’s side, Thomas Bentley accepted to become Josiah’s partner and the pottery officially became Wedgwood & Bentley on 10 August 1769.
This new luxury collection includes timeless and contemporary classics and demonstrates the ambition of the company: safeguarding our heritage and skills, yet appealing to modern generations of sophisticated and discerning consumers and connoisseurs globally. Linking past, present and future.
