Of all of Wedgwood's ware, the most highly prized and keenly sought are the company's range of Fairyland Lustre.
 
Fairyland Lustre was the name given to a range of ornamental lustre wares by "Daisy" Makeig-Jones (full name, Susannah Margaretta "Daisy" Makeig-Jones (1881–1945) who was a designer and artist for Wedgwood.
 
Daisy Makeig-Jones was born in Wath-upon-Dearne near Rotherham in Yorkshire, the eldest of seven children, and she came from a professional background.
 
After attending boarding school and studying the Torquay School of Art, she joined Wedgwood in 1909, aged in her late twenties. The first fairyland Lustre was produced from her designs in 1915.
 
Fairyland Lustre is characterised by bright underglaze colours, commercial lustres and printed figures (often elves and fairies), scenes and landscapes.
 
Daisy Makeig-Jones retired in 1931 and only one new pattern was designed after that date. Production of the range continued until 1941, and once all the stock had been sold there was little interest in the range until a revival in popularity in the 1960s, leading to a consequent rise in prices which has since been maintained, making Fairyland Lustre one of the most valuable and collectable types of Wedgwood porcelain.
 
One fact remains clear- as the production of the major Fairyland Lustre pieces was very limited, only a handful remain today in pristine condition. Such unique and personally signed pieces will doubtless continue to enjoy great investment potential in future years.- simply a really beautiful object to enjoy whilst appreciating financially - surely the most perfect combination for wise investors and collectors.
 
All Wedgwood Fairyland and Ordinary Lustre would have the Portland Vase Mark. Earlier peices would be without the three stars beneath the vase. From 1900 onwards With the three stars under the vase. Printed in various colours. ENGLAND...
