A Wedgwood Black Basalt Plaque 'The Frightened Horse' by Stubbs (Code 8190)

  • £35000


A fine Wedgwood limited edition plaque in black basalt.  The plaque depicts 'The Frightened Horse', and is based on a painting by George Stubbs completed around 1765 and which hangs in the Yale Centre for British Art.  Interestingly the design is produced mirrored on the horizontal axis - the Stubbs original has the horse on the right side.

The plaque is produced in Wedgwood's famous black basalt ceramic and looks very effective as you can see in the images.  The plaque has superb detailing and is of a very high standard as you would expect from the limited edition ranges.  This plaque was limited to a very low number of just 250 of which this is 137 and it was released in 1973.

The plaque is set in an antique style frame with flock mount as typical of Wedgwood for this period.  There is a name plaque set to the front of the frame, and the Wedgwood mark is impressed to the overhand of a rock.  To the reverse is the standard Wedgwood impressed marks and gold printed details.  No box or paperwork present.


Plaque in excellent order, no damage or restoration.  Some knocks and aging to the frame, a paint strip to the left side of the frame detached and re-glued but doesn't really affect display as it is to the side and not the fascia.  No box or original paperwork.
