Back in 1972, Leonard Rakow, then president of the WSNY, introduced the concept for a Registry of Unique Wedgwood which would give prominence to unique Wedgwood artifacts. The registry has gone fallow for many years. Now however, due to the rise of the WSNY into an organization of not only national but international prominence and the development of the Ars Ceramica into the premier scholarly publication with a focus on Wedgwood, the time has come to resurrect the Registry for the benefit of the ceramic community.
Webster's dictionary defines unique as being without a like or equal, single in kind or excellence. The registry will seek therefore to archive these unique examples of Wedgwood production for collectors all over the world.
Any collector who wishes to establish the uniqueness of a piece should submit a photograph, and detailed description of the piece to include size, color, body, and decoration to Dr. Jeff Tulman, President of the Society. After publication of the picture and description the uniqueness of the piece can be challenged by submission to the society of a matching piece. If a piece passes this vetting process, it shall be deemed eligible for admission to the Registry of Unique Wedgwood. The registry will be kept on file and interesting submissions will be published in the Ars Ceramica.
The rules for submission are as follows:
The Wedgwood Society published a newsletter for members approximately six times a year announcing its meetings.
