    Imitation jasper biscuit barrel and cover

Neo-Classical ornamentation on Wedgwood's jasper has become, since the eighteenth century, a style icon. As with all such iconic designs over time a degree of both imitation and direct copying have occured. This biscuit barrel is clearly not a fake, but is made to appear in the style of jasper. The relief features Diana and sacrifice figures and has probably been sourced directly from items of Wedgwood's manufacture.

Neo-Classical ornamentation on Wedgwood's jasper has become, since the eighteenth century, a style icon. As with all such iconic designs over time a degree of both imitation and direct copying have occured. This biscuit barrel is clearly not a fake, but is made to appear in the style of jasper. The relief features Diana and sacrifice figures and has probably been sourced directly from items of Wedgwood's manufacture. The item has been mould-made from a porcelaneous body, and then the blue ground to the relief crudely hand-coloured blue. The item is probably of foreign manufacture, either from Europe or possibly Japan, and dates from the first quarter of the 20th Century. This example is badly broken.
