This early covered vase by Wedgwood is crafted in the firm’s iconic pale blue and white jasperware. The solid pale-blue body is applied in white relief with neoclassical swags of flowers and stiff leaves. Three legs support the impressive design, with goat masks and hoof terminals upon a shaped triangular base.

The firm’s characteristic unglazed matte “biscuit” stoneware finish was first developed in a spectrum of colors by Wedgwood founder Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. However, the pale cornflower blue hue exhibited in this piece was the firm’s most popular ever produced, earning itself the name “Wedgwood blue.”
