Description Jasperware is a type of pottery developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s with an unglazed biscuit finish. Often relief decorations of contrasting colors are characteristic of jasperware, giving a cameo effect. Dipped refers to the colored slip added to the white body, here black. 

The Dancing Hours depicts the classical Horae, the personifications of the hours of the day. The source for the design is a chimneypiece of white marble against a blue lapis ground, formerly in the Palazzo Borghese in Rome. [In the 18th century it was installed in Moor Park, Hertfordshire.] Attributed to John Flaxman Jr., the design is perhaps the best-known of all the Wedgwood bas reliefs.
