Nationality: American

Biography:
Robert and William Wilson were the sons of early New York silversmith Robert Wilson (1766-1824). Robert Wilson moved to Philadelphia in 1814, and his two sons founded their company there, working from 1824-1870. The pair grew notable for their quality and workmanship, as well as their use of Rococo styles in their designs. Robert died in 1846 and William became the sole proprietor of the company. Because the brand had become so recognizable and respected, William continued to mark production pieces under the name “R &W Wilson” for another 30 years. In 1877, William dissolved the company and formed William Wilson and Son, which existed until 1909.
