This vase first appeared in Wedgwood's 1787 ornamental ware catalog. The bas relief is 'Sacrifice to Cupid' dating back as a subject to the eighteenth century. The four muses around the base are Terpsichore, muse of dance and choral song. This piece is elevated with its original plinth to recreate an exciting statement piece.
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.
