The Wedgwood Society of Washington D.C. was formed in 2000 to promote the education and enjoyment of Wedgwood collectors in the mid-Atlantic area. Wedgwood enthusiasts and collectors meet several times a year to share their research in the form of lectures, newsletters and other educational forums. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Wedgwood . Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome all who appreciate the art and timeless beauty of Wedgwood.

Our next meeting will be held

This is the WSWDC annual
membership meeting. Following the proceedings, we will hear a lecture
from Casey Monahan, Cunningham Curatorial Assistant for the Collection at the Harvard Art
She will speak about the Grenville L. Winthrop collection of Old Wedgwood, which was part of his large bequest to the Harvard Art Museums.
Most of the Winthrop collection was acquired from noted London dealer Frederick Rathbone at the turn of the twentieth century.
