  • About

    The underglaze scale blue ground was one of Worcester’s most successful inventions. The area designated for the ground was first washed over with dilute cobalt oxide. The scales were then applied in darker cobalt blue. The pattern helped overcome a tendency of the blue ground to cover unevenly.
