Florence C Roberts is listed as one of the stoneware artists working at Royal Doulton from 1879 to 1930. As well as the usual incised and carved techniques practiced by many of the Doulton Wares artists, she was fond of relief modelling of flowers and foliage. She collaborated with several of the leading artists, especially Hannah Barlow. Jane Hurst is listed as having worked at Doulton from 1879 to 1922. She was a Senior Assistant at Lambeth from 1882. By 1911 she was a supervisor and in her last 10 years at Doulton, she produced original work. Her stoneware output was prolific and always of the highest quality.
