 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 1
Call Number: MSS 7, Series III

Scope and Contents

Includes brief descriptions of each activity with images of the 12 plates; with a detachable order form.

"The new series of Wedgwood captures the sturdy charm of New England. Sold only in complete sets of twelve plates at $36.00."

"New England Industries, a series of twelve Wedgwood plates reproducing woodcuts by Clare Leighton, perhaps America's best known graphic artist, represents those industries that form the foundation of the New England heritage. They portray the harvest wrung from earth and water by the early settlers who contributed so much of vitality to the building of America."

"The woodcuts, on a new coupe shape in Wedgwood Queen's Ware, are reproduced underglaze in charcoal sepia by a process which makes it possible to retain every stroke of the artist's tools. They are equally attractive for use at the table or as wall decoration. They make ideal gifts for Christmas or for any occasion, for who would not be proud to own a Clare Leighton-Wedgwood masterpiece?"
