At Wedgwood, we’ve been creating iconic tableware for over 260 years with designs that capture the story of our English heritage. Gold Columbia is one of our most striking patterns, originally created by Thomas Allen in the 1880s who drew inspiration from the classical world of mythical winged dragons, blending it with delicate florals to create a timeless and quintessentially English design. Allen joined Wedgwood in the 1870s as a designer and painter, quickly gaining recognition as one of the finest ceramic painters in the industry. Gold Columbia celebrates the British craftsmanship and time-honoured techniques still applied at our factory in Barlaston, England. Reviving Allen’s original design and embellishing it with hand applied 22-carat gold detailing, this fine bone china collection is the perfect embodiment of our heritage, high quality and exceptional skills.
