Wedgwood History
« on: Thursday 02 December 04 11:54 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for a contact (email, website?) for finding some Wedgwood history c. 1870. I have emailed the address online for the Wedgwood museum some time ago, but have not received a reply. The information I am seeking relates to an art competition that was supposedly run (from family stories) to "Match the Wedgwood Blue". Our ancestor (who arrived in Oz 1878) supposedly won this competition. We have her entry (a vase with the appropriate blue - NOT a Wedgwood item). An award plaque that supposedly existed was lost when the original family home was sold - 1950s.
