I am sorry, I lost the URL from which I obtained this, but think it is an excellent capsulized look at the overall situation, which is still not resolved, much later than was originally promised. The visual image of that brutally split Portland Vase really brings home the situation in one visual punch!

Produced by Wedgwood in 1970 for the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, this black basalt portrait medallion of the musical genius is a fine tribute to the work of Wedgwood modeller Eric Owen, well known for his busts of several famous historic figures. Frequently we remove portrait medallions from their frames but this one is so beautiful we have left it just as we found it. HAPPY 243rd BIRTHDAY to a man who has brought musical magic to so many for so long! Click the link to see this item in our inventory. FREE SHIPPING IF HE IS PURCHASED MONDAY DECEMBER 16th, let him celebrate with a fine new home!

It appears the 1751 Wedgwood family home known as The Big House is deteriorating and the damage and its possible repair are involved in an insurance claim. Go here to see an article on the situation. What a shame it would be to lose this historic building!
