Jasperware Plaque, 1780-1800
The Victoria & Albert Museum
This plaque of blue jasper-dip shows a white bust relief of Queen Charlotte, consort of George III. She is seen in profile to the left and wears a low-necked dress and ermine cloak. The oval portrait is set in a gilt metal frame and inscribed below with “Q. CHARLOTTE.” Of course, it is the work of Josiah Wedgwood & Sons and dates between 1780 and 1800.
