Perhaps the best-known of all the Wedgwood bas-relief, the design depicts the classical 'Horae,' the personifications of the seasons or hours of the day. The original inspiration for this world-famous frieze is a chimney piece of white marble against a blue lapis ground, formerly in the Palazzo Borghese in Rome.
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.
