Martha Stewart and Piers, Lord Wedgwood have become friends along their way over the years, being a good team of Josiah Wedgwood & Sons advocates. Click the title of this post to read a good and accurate (accuracy often difficult to find on-line) article about the history of the company and various Wedgwood products. If you look through our posts, you'll see other articles about Piers, and photos of him too. At our website, www.alexisantiques.com, in our Featured Items section you'll see another good article about an appearance by His Lordship on Martha's TV show which features a piece of the Frog Service Reproduction Queen's Ware series which we loaned them for the show. Martha is a Wedgwood collector so her interest in the subject is not merely one of having another subject to highlight in her magazine and on her TV show, but also one closer to her heart as a collector. 5/19/11, the Ice Pail has sold, so this featured item frame will be gone, but the link above will take you to any Frog Service items we may have in stock at any one time. Today His Lordship is in Australia at a signing event and word has it that he's with our friends Colin Jones and Lee Bradshaw helping spread the Wedgwood spirit in that part of the world. Have fun fellows!
