Water Lily

Water LilyShown is a Josiah Wedgwood (1759-2005) platter printed with the Water Lily #01 pattern. This is the original version of the Water Lily pattern, that proved to be too expensive to make. It was replaced in 1811, when Josiah II said that it would be removed from display. He added that the pattern would be reissued in blue with an altered border. For TCC members, see pattern #16308 and pattern #1652 in the TCC Database of Patterns and Sources for more information.
