Jasperware was matte finish pottery product (some refer to it as porcelain) developed by Josiah Wedgwood and used to imitate onyx or sardonyx in that it had a background color (usually blue, but not always) with the white design in relief.

Jasperware was originally developed by Josiah Wedgwood during the mid-1700s and took advantage of new decorating trends, notably, in this case, copies of pieces found by early archeologists digging Greek and Roman ruins.

The designs were then cast: some of them are still in production.

Sir William Hamilton's collection of ancient Greek vases was an important influence on Flaxman's work.

This example has a few clues to its vintage: first, it’s stamped “Made In England,” “Wedgwood” and “57.” The marking “Made In England” automatically labels this as most likely a 20th-century example.
