Creator (Role)

Josiah Wedgwood and Sons (Maker)
Josiah Wedgwood and Sons, commonly known as Wedgwood, is a fine china, porcelain, and luxury accessories company founded on 1 May 1759[1] by English potter and entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood. In 1987, Wedgwood merged with Waterford Crystal to create Waterford Wedgwood, an Ireland-based luxury brands group. Waterford Wedgwood was purchased by the New York City-based private equity firm KPS Capital Partners in 2009, and became part of a group of companies known as WWRD Holdings Ltd., an acronym for "Waterford Wedgwood Royal Doulton." On 2 July 2015, Fiskars Corporation acquired WWRD. Wikkipedia 10/27/2017
