Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre line was introduced in 1915. The line was designed by an eccentric woman named Daisy Makeig-Jones, an artist who talked her way into a job as an apprentice painter for Wedgwood, and then convinced management that she could design, too.
After two years at Wedgwood, Makeig-Jones, clearly talented, started to design tableware in 1911. Attracted to the fanciful, she began to design Oriental dragon patterns in 1913. She moved on to her signature Fairyland Lustre design in 1915, a year after the war in Europe started.
The rise of Makeig-Jones within Wedgwood was unusual not only because she was a woman, but also because she rose from within the company’s ranks, an exception to the well-known designers that Wedgwood normally brought in from outside. The Fairyland Lustre line proved immensely popular across the Atlantic during the Roaring 20s.
Wedgwood discontinued Fairyland Lustre in 1929.
