Main Old Hall Club Title

Robert Welch

Robert Welch was appointed by Old Hall as consultant designer in 1955 and soon made his presence felt by Council of Design Centre awards in 1958, 1962 and 1965 for, respectively, a toast rack, a collection of dishes and a range of cutlery.  The Robert Welch company has been established over 50 years and new designs are constantly being introduced.  These can be found on the Robert Welch website and in the shops at Chipping Campden (see picture on right), Warwick and Bath.
