Today, during my cruise through bookmarked websites, I ran across this image of a pair of Wedgewood ewers.
"Skinner Auction house in Massachusetts lists them as: "Pair of Wedgewood Solid Black Jasper Wine and Water Ewers, England, late 20th century, from the St. James Collection of limited editions, each with white relief, including the Sacred to Neptune water ewer with figure seated atop the shoulders and holding the horns of a marine monster below the spout, and the Sacred to Bacchus wine ewer with figure seated atop the shoulders and holding the horns of a ram's head below the spout, each with printed and impressed marks and in a limited edition of 50, ht. 16 in."
The estimated auction price is $2800.
I'm the happy owner of a large blue jasper water pitcher with sprigged classical figures, early 20th century and a black jasper tea set of the same era--the one with the 'widow' on the lid. Both are wonders to look at through magnification.
I can only imagine how wonderful these ewers are.
