In 1911 James Wiltshaw took effective control of Wiltshaw & Robinson when he brought out the Robinsons brother’s share of the company. Wiltshaw employed Horace Wain to be W&R’s new designer. While I cannot put an exact date on when Mr Wain began with W&R, his patterns seem to start flowing onto the market in circa 1915.

 

 Harvey Pettit of “The Cochrane & Pettit Archive of Carlton Ware” states; Hoarce Wain's importance to the success of Carlton Ware cannot be overestimated; his technical expertise as decorating manager enabled the pottery to introduce many fabulous patterns. Wain was highly influenced by Chinese and Japanese ceramics and his use of names such as Kang His, Kien Lung and Cloisonne`Ware clearly indicate this influence”.
