Glossary

  • Drabware

    Drabware

    A dull brownish-grey coloured earthenware or stoneware ceramic body. The majority of drabware production took place at the Wedgwood Etruria factory during the nineteenth century. The stoneware variety could be decorated with raised-relief ornamentation, whereas the drab-glazed earthenware could be enhanced by the addition of gilding, or, more rarely, print and enamelled designs.

  • Gilding

    Gilding

    The application of gold to the pottery body. During the mid-eighteenth century gold leaf was mixed with honey, applied to the ware, and fired at a low temperature to ‘fix’ the gilding. By 1855 a liquid gold had been developed, and a bright-burnished gold was in use from 1860.
