In my June blog article, I said that the Wedgwood & Co. Farnese Flora featured and shown again above is the only figure I know of with the Wedgwood & Co. mark. Oops! In Staffordshire Figures 1780-1840, Volume 4, I show a large group of Eros tussling with Anteros marked in the same way. If only I could remember everything I write! At any event, the group, shown below is marked Wedgwood & Co.---AND it is on the same base as Farnese Flora.
Also on that same base and bearing the Wedgwood & Co. mark is this large Fortitude.
These are the only figures I have recorded with the Wedgwood & Co. mark, rather than the usual Wedgwood mark. All three stand on the same base, and this base is not seen on figures merely marked Wedgwood. Clearly, this base came into use during the period of Wedgwood's Knottingley-based partnership, spanning an eighteen month period from 1798-99.
