Elizabeth Fisher worked at the Doulton Lambeth Pottery from 1873 to 1888. Strongly influenced by George Tinworth, her earlier designs used incised foliate scrolls, formalised flower heads and bead-work. She later branched out, often simplifying her designs in line with changing tastes. Emma A Burrows worked as a senior assistant from 1881 to c1894.
