Collector Wedgewood teapot art prints
These art prints of Wedgewood teapots are a wonderful gift for someone who collects the famous Jasperware.
This unique china is known world-wide for the softly colored backgrounds and raised white figures.
Creating Jasperware is said to be one of the most important inventions in ceramic history.
The colors (usually soft blue, dark blue, or green) are even, delicate, and durable in spite of being unglazed.
Jasperware was developed by Josiah Wedgewood and introduced in 1775.
John Wesley Wedgewood teapot
Josiah is also famous for the "John Wesley Wedgewood" teapot.
John Wesley, who founded Methodism, initially rejected tea and urged people to give their money to the poor instead.
Later, through personal experience, he changed his mind and became such a dedicated tea drinker that Josiah Wedgewood made him a gallon-sized teapot with a calico pattern from his wife's apron and two verses of Wesley's favorite prayer before meals, or Grace.
