Marion Henderson Wilson is considered as one of the “Glasgow Girls”, and attended the Glasgow School of Art around 1884-1896. She was an award winning artist at national and local competitions and was also a regular exhibitor at the Glasgow Society Lady Artists’ Club. Her speciality was mainly in metalwork; repousse brass copper and tin, all very much in her own distinctive Glasgow Style. Ref: Glasgow Girls; Women in Art and Design, 1880-1920 by Jude Burkhauser.
