Early 19th century Wedgwood plate, in Caneware with applied Rosso Antico fruiting vines in relief. The tan-coloured, unglazed stoneware was relatively rarely used for decorative or display objects over the period, more commonly used for cooking utensils or serving dishes — particularly a selection of game pie dishes — as Josiah Wedgwood recognised the ware’s potential for simulating an impression of pastry crust. Provenance: Property of the Saint Louis Art Museum, Sold to benefit the acquisition fund.
