Wedg"wood` ware` (?). [From the name of the inventor, Josiah Wedgwood, of England.]

A kind of fine pottery, the most remarkable being what is called jasper, either white, or colored throughout the body, and capable of being molded into the most delicate forms, so that fine and minute bas-reliefs like cameos were made of it, fit even for being set as jewels.
