Wedgwood Blue Bird
The New for 2016 Wedgwood Blue Bird Pattern has been designed to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Wedgwood Queens Ware. Queens Ware was first produced in 1765 and was a new type of cream coloured earthenware created by Josiah Wedgwood. It was named after Queen Charlotte who commissioned its first production as a tea service. The Royal patronage of this new and innovative earthenware ensured its immediate success across the world. Wedgwood Blue Bird motif has been taken from Wedgwood pattern archives dating also from the 18th century. The design has been redrawn to create a relaxing and calm design decorated in subtle blue tones accented with gold detailing. The Blue bird is regarded in many cultures as the symbol of happiness and its use in decoration can be found in China dating back to 1766BC. In Wedgwood’s Blue Bird design, the bird sits amongst the branches of the flowering shrub to create a soft feminine design perfect for both formal and casual entertaining.
