The Elegance And Popularity Of Wedgwood Oberon China

In 1765, King George III’s spouse, Queen Charlotte, solicited Wedgwood to become “Potter to His and Her Majesty.” Hence began Wedgwood’s popularity among heads of state in countries across the world. Virtually 250 years after the very first royal commission, Michelle Obama chose Wedgwood Oberon as the formal dinnerware of the White House.

Oberon china is a gorgeous pattern; it’s easy to determine why so many people adore this assortment. It has an almost whimsical style with flowing vines and fauna. The colors are rich but muted; oranges, forest greens and tawny browns set against the gorgeous white colored bone china what Wedgewood is identified for.

It’s no surprise, at least to me, that Oberon style has a mystical or magical feel. I do nevertheless wonder if the artists that made this handsome assortment were inspired by Oberon, king of the fairies in medieval and renaissance literature, or probably Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Either true or untrue, this china is beautiful and eccentric.

As an added touch to these pieces, Wedgwood has rimmed each in 22 kt. Gold. Obviously this makes it not dishwasher safe or safe to use in the microwave, but one would barely be compelled to eat leftovers from such magnificent dishes.

Perhaps the most classy piece within the assortment would be the coffee pot. It is a very classic shape, having a delicate spout and handle. The flora and fauna motif is repeated all over the vessel with refined accents of gold around the foot, handle and lid. It is genuinely a beautiful piece.

The practically 11 inch dinner plate incorporates all the rich colors from the design in a distinctive geometric trim that rims the plate. With the simpleness of the design, it tends to make for a great pallet for a vibrant meal to be offered.

There's beautiful accent plates within the five piece set; the 8 inch salad/dessert plate. The Oberon china pattern is repeated around the face of the plate and accents the dinner as well as the bread plate fabulously.

There's another beautiful accent plate that can be added as well; the 9 inch salad plate. The muted, somewhat patterned green of the plate accents the browns, oranges and the slight blues which are within the flora design.
