If anyone is interested in this Wedgwood pendant please reply to Greg in the comments box provided here. A bit under-acknowledged when it comes to Wedgwood I think - the artistic contributions borrowed from the Ancient Greeks courtesy of the Adams family is what I think makes Wedgwood Jasperware so bewitchingly beautiful and collectible today. It has the markings WEDGWOOD 59 G P or G R, any idea what these marking mean to the date of this piece and perhaps the designer? Many of our visitors (some are Wedgwood collectors) would love to see your Cameo beauty. Thank you, Angel Hunter Hi Angel thanks for writing in.

Robert Adams developed the "Adam Style", and his theory of "movement" in architecture based on his studies of antiquity, elevated him to become one of the most successful and fashionable architects in the country.

Marks such as this suggest the piece was made between 17.

Note that Josiah Wedgwood formed a partnership with his cousin, Thomas Bentley, in 1769. Overall, the piece was marked with the words “WEDGWOOD & BENTLEY” that formed a full circle.

This appears to be a potter's mark, and belongs to the period 1795-1850; perhaps a little later.

The earliest jasper was stained throughout and was known as "solid," but by 1829 production in jasper had virtually ceased.

Ornamental wares with this mark are always after 1780. The comma, or moustache mark, looks like two dashes arranged like a moustache, or single open and close quotes - see below for examples.

They are distinctly separate marks, and generally appear over or under the mark.

In 1844 production resumed using items coloured only on the surface and known as "dip." Solid jasper was not manufactured again until 1860.

Jasperware is particularly associated with the neoclassical sculptor and designer John Flaxman Jr who began to supply Wedgwood with designs from 1775.
