On the cover:a Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre Advertising plaque.
Susannah Margaretta “Daisy” Makeig-Jones (1881-1945) commenced work for Wedgwood in 1909. She was to become one of the firm’s major designers of the early twentieth century, and is best known for her Fairyland Lustre ware, introduced in 1914. Her innovations and contributions to design and decoration were instrumental in Wedgwood’s transition from its pre-World War I tradition to the post-war modern period. Fairyland Lustre is the subject of an article by Nicole Jordan, illustrated with examples from the Birmingham Museum of Art, commencing on page 40. The cover illustrates an important bone china Fairyland Lustre advertising plaque made by Wedgwood for distribution to retailers, with an “Elves in a Pinetree” design. Bone china, c. 1923, gold Portland Vase stamp and Z4287, 10¾" x 7¾" (27.3 x 19.7 cm). Tulman Collection.
