I have a 18th century Wedgwood brooch for sale.  Pale blue dates the piece between 1775 and 1826. It is marked on the back. Wedgwood and the letter "L"...Appraised for $429.   I will sell for $129 and will ship for free. Here's my e-mail adress: nat_mart2007@hotmail.com

I believe the letter L places your brooch at the year 1883.

Being pale blue does not date the piece.  However as the piece has a date stamp of L as Natalie pointed out you can know that the year was 1883.

I hope you didn't pay for that appraisal.  If so ask, for him/her to stand behind it and purchase it for that price quoted or refund your money because they clearly had no idea of which they spoke.

Here is the list of date letter and year...

Sorry Antoinette. I'll have to say that you are wrong. Here's the link to date Wedgwood, I'll copy a paragraph that dates my brooch...

"Before the advent of the dating system in 1860 one must look to other clues to date pieces described as marked WEDGWOOD only. In Jasper the colour is important. Solid Black Jasper was produced between 1778 and about 1826; the white body dipped in black between 1778 and 1826 with production resumed in 1844 and continuing to the moderm era. Pale blue dates the piece between 1775 and 1826. Dark or deep blues date the piece as before 1820. In general Jasper pieces produced before 1860 were produced before 1826 except for black, blue, green and dipped pieces and solid white jasper which were resumed in 1844."


My brooch is NOT 1883 because there's no set of 3 numbers, the last showing the year of manufacturing... My brooch is marked Wedgwood ONLY with a "L" dating it between 1775-1826...Here's the link to date Wedgwood

Taken from the first line of the quote you posted above...

"Before the advent of the dating system in 1860 one must look to other clues to date pieces described as marked WEDGWOOD only."


Keywords ~ WEDGWOOD only

I'd love to believe it was an early piece as well, but I simply can't.


 Are there any marks on the silver?  Sometimes you can get a date range from the silversmiths mark.
