Black Basalt Portland White On Black Large Vase

FREE Ground Shipping On Any Order $50+
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 Black Basalt Collection combines deep Black Basalt, an original body and a timeless color with modern accents for an unusual contemporary feel. Engine-turning a very precise hand technique known today only by a handful of Wedgwood craftsmen is used to create each piece. The Wedgwood Prestige collection embodies the Wedgwood tradition, revisited and interpreted with a modern approach. Meticulously handcrafted in England by highly skilled craftsmen, each piece is a unique work of art.
