This Wedgwood, Edme Sugar Box is a classical piece of traditional dining ware ideal for those who enjoy the antique or elegant accompaniments with a story to tell. Restrained and stylish, the Edme is fashioned from Queen's Ware, a fine, cream-coloured earthenware developed by Josiah Wedgwood I in the mid-18th century. The pattern, too, is historic, commissioned in 1906 by French architects and designers Dannier Frères and created by Wedgwood art director, John Goodwin. The source of this commission is reflected in the architectural ribbing. Edme wears its pedigree lightly, looking as crisply contemporary today as in the Art Deco years. At Wedgwood, time never stands still and the Edme range has, of course, evolved.
