Chairman of the famous pottery firm Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Ltd (1867-1930), and High Sheriff of Staffordshire. All items are very good, if somewhat grubby. The typed letters are one page, quarto and the autograph, one page, octavo. All are signed 'Frank H Wedgwood', and most are stamped and docketed. One letter from 1918, two from 1919, one from 1924, five from 1925 and two from 1926. Mostly brief. Subjects range from Society meetings, lectures, a discussion of an 'admirable' list of 'Trade Consumers of Pottery', the Wedgwood 'Pottery prizes', design sheets, and manufacturers to write to with lists of artists. Letter of 7 July 1925: 'On looking through the list of Pottery & Glass Judges I see that Mr. H. Irving of the Paragon China Co., Longton does not appear on the list. Mr. Edis asked me to approach a brother potter in place of Mr. H. J. Plant who is now in the U.S.A. and I wrote some 10 days ago to Mr. Edis telling him that this gentleman had kindly consented to act as one of the Judges.' The lot,
