One-of-a-kind Wedgwood tea and coffee set is now on display

at the V&A Wedgwood Collection in Barlaston










StokeOnTrent Live reports that a one-of-a-kind Wedgwood tea and coffee set which previously belonged to fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is now on display in Staffordshire. The 'Campanula' set can now be seen at the V&A Wedgwood Collection in Barlaston and was owned by the controversial creative director for Chanel until his death in 2019. Designed by Paul Follot for Wedgwood, the hand-painted set was made around 1923 and includes 16 cups, 15 saucers, a teapot, a coffee pot, a milk jug and a sugar pot. The pieces are thought

to be the only examples of this pattern and shape in existence.

BBC Select discusses Josiah Wedgwood's humble origin and his marketing strategies to appeal to the social aspirations of the growing  middle class.  From opening the first purpose built showroom in the fashionable West End of London, to clever invoicing techniques, Wedgwood transformed the buying public's tastes and vastly increased his sales and ultimately his wealth.
