fine English pottery and china made by the company established in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood (1730-95) near Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire. Its most characteristic design, called Jasper, uses raised white patterns or figures on a blue background. This design was influenced by neoclassicism and became very fashionable when first produced.
