    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.
