Affordable Luxury

An innovator in the production of pottery, as well as in the way it was marketed and sold, Josiah Wedgwood rose from a tradesman to become one of the most successful businessmen of his era. Inventing materials that are still used today, he built a company that has always been associated with quality. Through his commitment to making luxury affordable, Wedgwood forever changed the art and craft of pottery and even affected British society. Design by Wedgwood Celebrating the 260th anniversary of formation of Wedgwood, the 2 Wedgwood coin was designed by the company that carries his name to this day. The primary image features an interpretation of the Jasperware vase that is perhaps the companies best known product. The vase created by Josiah Wedgwood took some four years to perfect and is considered by many to be his crowning achievement.
