A silversmith and graduate from the Royal College of Art, Robert Welch was appointed as the consultant designer at J&J Wiggin in 1956, a time when many companies were employing formally trained designers to re-invigorate their brands. Originally commissioned by P&O for use on their ships, the range was subsequently put into general production and won a Design Centre award in 1962. In April of that year Ken Stradling mounted the first exhibition of this range outside London.
