Wedgewood jasperware is a bisque finished ceramic of fine grained unglazed stoneware which was invented by Josiah Wedgwood in 1775. Wedgwood has historically made this material into lovely accessories and momento pieces featuring decorative designs that were highly influenced by the ancient cultures being studied and rediscovered in the second half of the 1700s. Back then Great Britain was expanding its empire. Many of Wedgwood's jasperware motifs were inspired by the ancient mythologies: Roman, Greek and Egyptian which were very popular then. One can see this in the example of this mid-century chain and pendant on offer by Ibon Antiques.
