WEDGWOOD SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON DC
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.
