DescriptionFrom 1875 to around 1900, Wedgwood produced limited quantities of basalt with gilding and painted decoration simulating the three colours of patination found on Regency and Empire bronze objects and candlesticks. Three of the figures and the flaming tripod in the reliefs are similar to ones used on the eighteenth-century blue jasper plaque (925.23.27), where the design is attributed to John Flaxman Jr. (English, 1755-1826).
