Wilson was a prominent figure at the Wedgwood ceramics manufactory between 1927 and 1962. During his thirty-six years with the company he introduced new kilns, designed their best-selling Globe shape line of ceramics, and worked as the Production Director and joint Managing Director, raising Wedgwood’s production levels to new heights, and creating a stable foundation for the firm’s future. This bowl, marked “WEDGWOOD” on its base, is from his tenure there.
