Prestige: Portland Vase

By Wedgwood
Prestige: Portland Vase

091574188225

This Large Portland Vase has a Black Jasper body and is hand ornamented with white Jasper. Modelled by Henry Webber and William Hackwood, this is a reproduction in Jasper of the Portland or Barberini Vase, a first century cameo glass artefact, purchased in 1783 by Sir William Hamilton. The vase was then sold to the Dowager Duchess of Portland. Following her death, the vase went up for auction and was bought in June 1786 by her son, the third Duke of Portland, who immediately lent it to Wedgwood so that he might make a copy of the piece in Jasper. The classical bas relief scene is thought to depict the myth of Peleus and Thetis (mother of Achilles). Each relief is individually made from a mould and applied by hand.

The Wedgwood Prestige Collection is the jewel in the Wedgwood crown, representing over 250 years of the finest English craftmanship. Each piece is a unique work of art, handcrafted by a select few artisans, many of whom have spent decades perfecting their craft. Made using materials and techniques that Josiah Wedgwood himself perfected, the pieces create a beautiful link to the past. The Wedgwood Prestige Collection incorporates both traditional and contemporary designs, offering magnificent and timeless focal points within the finest homes.
