This Columbia Gold pattern was manufactured for 15 years by the Wedgwood China company, based in England. The Wedgwood Columbia Gold pattern is an extremly elegant & refined pattern yet provides a bit more excitment with its gold dragons which gives it an intresting look to it & adds a bit of mystique to the Columbia Gold pattern. Wedgwood manufactures several Columbia patterns but not all of them are that similar to each other, for example the Wedgwood Columbia W595 pattern is essentialy the same design if all you are looking at is the pattern design itself, however once you look at the beautiful colors added to the pattern it is hard to tell that they even resemble each other at all. Wedgwood also makes patterns that look quite similar to the Columbia Gold pattern such as Wedgwood Florentine Gold which has a similar gold dragon design but with a fuller & wider border. There also patterns to the lower end of the price spectrum made by Wedgwood & not quite as elegant but beautiful & sure to please whoever is eating off of it such as the Wedgwood Blue Heritage pattern.
Our favorite Wedgwood Columbia Gold pieces are the cream soup & saucer set as well as the dinner plate.
