Wemyss Ware

A Scottish man named Robert Heron started Wemyss ware in 1882 when he introduced Bohemian craftsmen into his Fifie pottery factory. The name Wemyss was given to the new style of pottery in honour of the Wemyss family of the nearby Wemyss castle, who were early and enthusiastic patrons of the ware. The most outstanding feature of the ware is the free-flowing and naturalistic hand painting.
