The Wedgwood Society of New York
December 1995 Lecture Topic

Our lecture this evening will be entitled ``Tableware for Royalty.'' Recent scholarship has focused on the Wedgwood ``Frog'' service for Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia. However, few people are aware of the other ``fine wares'' produced for royalty by Wedgwood in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Selected pieces will show that Wedgwood's wares were used in the fashionable homes of English and European dignitaries. Services for the flamboyant George IV's folly Brighton Pavilion to a mysterious unrecorded pattern will be shown from the Mint Museum of Art's study collection. Please bring in any tableware for royalty.
