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. Florrie Jones is listed as working at Doulton as Senior Assistant in 1902 and worked at Royal Doulton until 1928. Her work was well regarded and she completed a number of original designs. For more information on Royal Doulton visit our Maker's History pages.
