Wedgwood company was founded in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood. In 1765 they created a new form of creamware with fine glazed earthenware. The innovation impressed the then British Queen consort Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz so much, that she gave official permission to call it "Queen's Ware". In 1775 Josiah Wedgwood produced famous Wedgwood Jasperware – a pottery containing barium sulphate, barium carbonate and feldspar, which made the body thick and dense. Typical for such ware is blue plate with white décor.

Notably, Wedgwood pottery was frequently featured in a famous BBC One television series, showing Hyacinth Bucket's house.
