Ladies oval paint box made by Wedgwood. This modern piece of fine Wedgwood. The soft Portland blue base , white jasperware.
This rare and unusual piece is a fairly modern reproduction, by Wedgwood, of an original Wedgwood piece that was made in the last quarter of the 1700s. I do not know how many of the originals exist, but I would guess that they are extremely scarce especially considering how many pieces go into this set. The lid is adorned with a floral finial with petals stretching out from the center. The base has six individual scenes of putti and a tree at each far end of the oval.
The scenes are all in jasperware. One side of the base has putti hunting scenes.
In one scene three putti have a dog, horns, and a spear. In another they are carrying a boar's head.
In the third they are carrying a deer's head. The other side has three putti musical scenes. They are playing the cello, lyre, horn, and mandolin (or lute). This set has a total of 17 pieces! T are two palettes, the base and the lid, and a paint tray with 12 removable paint cups.
Each piece in this box is marked Wedgwood. " The bottom of this box reads "Ladies Paint Box.Sixth in the Masterpiece series. In a limited edition of 200.
