They also paid a visit to the Corning Museum of Glass in New York and of course came away enthralled with the glass Portland Vase held there. The photo shows side by side a Wedgwood Jasper Portland Vase & the cameo glass version.
The big black plaque by which Al & Adele stand is the VERY famous black basalt plaque made for Beeshy's Department Store.
Peter Kaellgren, Ph.D., Curator of Decorative Arts at the Royal Ontario Museum, treated Al & Adele to a great day of visiting and viewing at the ROM. Thanks to A & A for sharing their adventures with us!
May 7 - Somehow we didn't get the video of the balloon ceremony and interview with Lord Wedgwood at Barlaston on May Day, but thanks to Adele Barnett of WSWDC, we have it now! GO HERE to see the short video about the celebration of the Wedgwood Company's 250th birthday at the factory.
