Pair of candlesticks

Circa 1850

Tricolor jasperware

8 in. H x 4 1/2 in. Dm at base (20.3 cm H x 11.4 cm Dm)

$895.00

Developed by Wedgwood in the 1770s, jasperware became so popular that other potteries began making their own versions. The Neoclassical imagery on bright colors appealed to both upper-and middle-class consumers. Copeland, who took ownership of the Spode manufactory from circa 1847, produced these tricolor jasperware candlesticks in the mid-19th century. The pair features a tan stoneware body with deep blue dipped jasper decoration. Each candlestick has a different scene sprigged in white relief: one with a scene of cupids in a landscape, the other a bucolic countryside scene with a man and woman, each with a dog.

Condition

Very good. Some very minor areas of discoloration. A few sprigs of the white scrolling have worn off on one candlestick base, however this is negligible for the overall design. One candlestick with a radial crack in the dipped blue jasper around the top. This is superficial and does not go through to the stoneware underneath.
