I have recently acquired the Wedgwood Silver Jubilee bell pictured. I have conducted research to learn more information about the bell but am perplexed because the only bell I’ve located online is amethyst in color. The bell pictured is blue in color and contains an inscription on the back as follows “Silver Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 1952 – 1977”. I would like to know from anyone knowledgeable about Wedgwood bells if this bell was made in a blue glass.
Thank you in advance for any information provided.
I hope this will help you.
