Wiltshaw & Robinson (Ltd) 1898 1926
Earthenware and China manufacturer at the Carlton Works, Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent.
In 1933, after a long association, they took over Birks, Rawlins & Co Ltd, a bone china manufacturing company
In 1958 Wiltshaw & Robinson Ltd. was renamed: Carlton Ware Ltd

James Frederick Wiltshaw had worked in a managerial role for his father, Thomas, who was the managing director of James Macintyre &Co Ltd at the Washington Works, Burslem, until his death in 1887. Three years later, in 1890, James founded Wiltshaw and Robinson in partnership with two brothers, James Alcock and William Herbert Robinson. They took over the relatively modern Copeland Street Works in Stoke-on-Trent that had previously been occupied by a series of (unsuccessful) partnerships whose production had included parian statuary, china and earthenware.
Messrs Wiltshaw and Robinson, however, made fashionable earthenware which included a range of blush ground items imitating Royal Worcester, blue transfer printed wares, plain white, tinted faience, a range of Imari-style wares in the traditional blue, red and gilt and even sprigged ware in a variety of colours, reminiscent of Wedgwood.
Harold Taylor Robinson, son of James Alcock, replaced his uncle, William, as a director of the company and this was reflected by the change of name to Wiltshaw, Robinson & Son Ltd.
With hindsight of the subsequent business dealings of the Robinsons it seems inevitable that a split would occur. James Wiltshaw became sole proprietor of the company in 1911 amidst much rancour having bought out his partners. He proclaimed this in his advertising of the day by stating that he was now the sole proprietor of Wiltshaw & Robinson Ltd.
