Wedgwood's botanical patterns can be dated to 1810-1815 when Josiah's oldest son, John, became involved with the firm. John Wedgwood was a founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society and it is believed that his interest resulted an a number of botanical patterns produced by the firm at this time. A set of eleven dinner plates with matching platter in this botanical pattern is vanishingly rare and ravishingly beautiful. In homage, Wedgwood makes a modified pattern available today that is based on this original design, which the firm calls "Hibiscus."

"Pearlware," thought to have been developed about 1779 by Wedgwood, was a Wedgwood brand name for a "China Glaze" that English potters developed earlier to create a purer white background for blue-printed dinner ware. The white earthenware body contained a greater percentage of flint and white clay to which a small amount of cobalt was added to enhance the whitening effect..
