Crafted by Wedgwood, this exquisite and rare pair of square-section bulb pots are comprised of the firm’s famous pale “Wedgwood blue” jasperware so prized by collectors and connoisseurs alike. Winged, putti-like Cupid figures adorn each pot’s four sides representing the four seasons in a Neoclassical relief creating a bold white cameo effect characteristic of the English firm’s style. These unusual square vessels were first produced by Wedgwood in 1785 and were designed with multiple purposes in mind: They can be used as a pedestal for floral vases, a bough pot or a decorative planter for growing bulbs. The firm’s characteristically unglazed matte “biscuit” stoneware finish was first developed in a spectrum of colors by Wedgwood founder Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. However, the pale blue hue exhibited in these pieces was the firm’s most popular ever produced, earning itself the nickname “Wedgwood blue.”
