Wedgwood Thimbles

Wedgwood ThimblesJosiah Wedgwood worked with the established potter Thomas Whieldon until 1759 when relatives leased him the Ivy House in Burslem, allowing him to start his own pottery business. The launch of the new venture was helped by his marriage to a remote cousin Sarah (also Wedgwood) who brought a sizeable dowry with her.
 
Wedgwood’s most famous ware is jasperware. It was created to look like ancient cameo glass. It was inspired by the Portland Vase, a Roman vessel which is now a museum piece. (The first jasperware colour was Portland Blue, an innovation that required experiments with more than 3,000 samples).
 
Though factory records show that Wedgwood made thimbles in the late 18th Century it seems that non have survived.  With the increase in popularity of thimble collecting Wedgwood began to produce thimbles again in 1980
