A Georgian 14ct yellow gold jasperware cameo necklace created by Wedgewood. In the 1770s, the Stoke-on-Trent based potter, Josiah Wedgewood, created a unique type of stoneware that became hugely sought after by the upper classes. Most commonly created in a combination of white and sky blue, it heralded the creation of cameo style decorative pieces for the elegant salons of the period. The discovery of the excellently preserved Roman city of Pompeii at the beginning of the 18th century was a huge contributor to the burgeoning neo-classical style. Influencing everything by the early 19th century, it is particularly apparent in the figures, friezes and motifs that appear on Wedgewood pieces. A delicate and fragile medium, Georgian jasperware is sought after by collectors worldwide. Jewellery was also manufactured, with this necklace being a particularly fine surviving example. Composed of a number of elongated hexagonal shaped pendants that have been securely set into yellow gold and suspended along a fine chain. Mirroring the blue of the summer sky, each of these pendants features a different classical scene that has been expertly created. Of particular note is the pendant depicting the animated figure of Eros or Cupid riding a dolphin across the waves.
This collectable piece displays the famous colours and the characteristic unglazed matte finish associated with Wedgewood
