Lecture: Staffordshire Potteries / Wedgwood
The Colonial Dames of America
417 East 61st Street

Nicholas M. Dawes will join us for a talk about Staffordshire Potteries in the second half of the 18th century, including the artistic, technological, cultural and commercial influences in the work of England’s best known potter, Josiah Wedgwood I. The illustrated talk will include references to Wedgwood’s contemporaries, parallel trends in decorative arts and a view of Neo-Classical revivalism in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Attendees also are encouraged to bring objects for Mr. Dawes to examine and identify.

Lecturer
Mr. Dawes is Senior Vice President of Special Collections at Heritage Auctions in New York and former Vice President and auctioneer at Sotheby’s and Phillips, where he ran the European Ceramics department in the early 1980’s. Nicholas grew up near the Staffordshire Potteries in an antiques dealing family and has deep connections to the world of ceramics. He is the author of four standard works on decorative arts and known to many for his frequent appearances as an expert appraiser on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow since its debut in 1996.
