Midsummer Night's Dream 8x8 Tile Wedgwood

 

Style: Classical literary subject
• Technique: Blue and white transfer print
Maker: Josiah Wedgwood & Sons
Dimensions: 8" x 8"
Date: 1880 - 1890 (circa)

  

Demetrius from one of the best, if not the best, pictorial series from Wedgwood illustrating fairies from the Shakespeare play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. A somewhat controversial play, criticised by many people who saw images of themselves described by Shakespeare in the commuity of elves and fairies in which the play is set.

Although oft attributed to Thomas Allen this series was designed by Helen J A Miles. The design is too good for Thomas Allen's work even accounting for the engraving of the plate for the tile transfer print being done by an engraver and hence affecting the finished product. Mostly noticably better engraving than the 'Months of the Year' series also attributed to Helen J A Miles although it appear that two engravers were involved as the touch of the hand is ckearly different on some.

Verso very clean embossed Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Etruria.
