Wedgwood / Kings Lynn Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

King's Lynn Glass was founded in 1967 by glass designer Ronald Stennett-Willson. Two years later the company became part of the Wedgwood Group, and the factory was renamed Wedgwood Glass soon after, with Ronald as managing director. Wedgwood began producing glassware with a distinct Scandinavian style. Ronald Stennett-Wilson's most popular design was the Sheringham candlesticks, with disc shaped stems. Wedgwood acquired Galway Crystal in 1974, and soon after was renamed Wedgwood Crystal. Wedgwood bought a 50% share in Dartington Glass in 1982, and sold the stake to the Rockware Group in 1989. During this time, Frank Thrower, designer at Dartington, created several designs for Wedgwood, including the Brutus range. Wedgwood merged with Waterford in 1986, and was sold to Caithness Glass in 1988, being renamed Caithness Crystal. The factory closed in 1992.
