Wedgwood, Daisy Makeig-jones, Designer


Fairyland Lustre Plate

c. 1924–1932


Gift of Mr. and Mrs. John K. Olsen


The design of these child-like “imps” was inspired by Rose O’Neill’s Kewpie Doll. Makeig-Jones borrowed liberally from book illustration, which fired her imagination, especially the “Colour Fairy Books” series edited by Andrew Lang.
