Is it true that some of Bentley's letters were used as wrapping material at Wedgwood - and were thus lost to us? - Cookie Jacob-Hanson in Germany
please let the group know how we will be able to access the recorded version for later viewing? Thanks
When you were speaking about Wedgwood's Black Basalt, you showed a full size Portland Vase. This piece is actually a solid jasper body. Jasper and Basalt fire at different temperatures and therefore the applied sprigs will not adhere to the body.
It was Wedgwood's letters that were being used as wrapping papers. The papers were sold by the factory after Josiah's death as his sons were trying, unsuccessfully, to sell the works. The papers were then discovered and purchased as a whole.
