Ceramic artist Florence C Roberts worked at 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. Rosina Brown (RB) joined Doulton in 1875 initially as Senior Assistant working alongside other artists such as Frank Butler, Eliza Simmance and Hannah Barlow. Her work being recognised, she went on to complete her own designs as an artist in her own right. For information on Royal Doulton visit our Maker's History pages.
