The Wedgwood Society of Washington, D.C., Inc. (WSWDC), founded in 2000 and incorporated in 2005, was
formed to provide a forum in which Wedgwood enthusiasts could come
together and share their common interest – Wedgwood!
increase their knowledge and appreciation for the history, art,
science, production, and value of Wedgwood in general through ....
socials and other events
other related activities
Considering that some of
the first ties Josiah
Wedgwood had to America -
more than 250 years ago - were
here in the
mid-Atlantic region, it is
only fitting that such a
group, relishing the
creation of his work, be
established in the Nation’s
Capital. Thus, the WSWDC
organization was founded to
facilitate the scholarship of the subject and
the enjoyment of Wedgwood in general.
Wedgwood collectors, historians, dealers,
authors, students, and admirers comprise the Society’s
membership roster of nearly 300 strong. And they join us from
the local region, throughout the USA, and abroad - across seven countries! Levels of their Wedgwood knowledge or
activity range from novice to seasoned professional. Collectors
may have a handful of pieces to thousands, spanning up to four
centuries of production and covering one or more of the dozens
of product categories the Wedgwood firm has produced from the
mid-18th century to the present time.
The WSWDC logo is taken
from an early blue
medallion depicting a “Domestic Employment” scene designed by Lady Elizabeth Templetown; from the collection of WSWDC
founder, Adele I. Barnett.
The WSWDC is a nonprofit organization formed to provide
information and hold events relating to
the history, art, science, and celebration of Wedgwood. It
does not sell, distribute Wedgwood wares, or provide appraisals.
