The fairyland lustre design was created by Daisy Makeig-Jones.  She started her career at Wedgwood in 1909.  Between 1916 and 1941 she was chiefly responsible for the creation and expansion of the fairyland lustre line.  You could buy something from the line as late as 1941.  However, production basically halted in 1931 due to the global recession.  Only 14 of the 101 pattern designs were available for sale after 1931.  Most of the most important lustre pieces were executed in the 1920s.

Fairyland lustre is popular today because it is completely different not only from what Wedgwood was making at the time, but it was a totally unique look.  Most of the china used black or orange as the background color.  It was then decorated with fairies, elves, goblins, and ghosts of all colors and sizes.
