And today is no different. See where Lord Wedgwood is this week, in Hollywood no less! This article tells us of another good deed by Piers, Lord Wedgwood - the Design Icon Award. Hollywood glitterati star in this article with a shot of His Lordship. Unfortunately once again no one proof- read the article, as Wedgwood is mis-spelled...where have all the people who care about how they present themselves gone? There seem to be no newspapers, TV producers, magazine writers or anyone else willing and/ or able to ensure the accuracy of what they publish. ..... a sad commentary among a lot of other sad commentaries on today's world...but Piers does show us that in a world of sloppiness, some people still try to shine and improve the world. Congrats to Ian Callum for embodying the iconography Lord Wedgwood wants to celebrate!

The lucky Brits and Scots we know have been able to watch a great hour of the story of Josiah Wedgwood and his successes on British TV. Luckily an enterprising soul has shared that broadcast on YouTube. It is in four parts, 15 minutes each. Go HERE and you will see parts 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4. It is a well-done documentary with A. N. Wilson as narrator. Several of us think Mr. Wilson did a much better job with this production than his recent book, which has not received good reviews from collectors. I began reading it, and have set it aside. If you go to YouTube.com and type in the search term WEDGWOOD you will find many interesting videos relating to the company, the products, the family, both current info and more importantly, great history and demonstrations of the potting process. ENJOY! And don't forget our bone china is all still on 25% off sale. See us at www.alexisantiques.com and at eBay seller ID alexisantiques.com.
