James F. Wileman

James Francis Wileman is listed at the Foley Works, Fenton in directories from 1869 to 1892 but the Wileman family ran the works from about 1856. Godden gives James' dates as 1869-92. The firm eventually became Shelley. Only two relief-moulded jugs have been recorded, one from an earlier design by the Sandford Pottery.
