Doulton and Co, founded c.1815, originally made utility ceramics, with some stoneware jugs and ornamental bottles. Henry Doulton introduced decorative stoneware and architectural terracotta at Lambeth in the mid 1860s and over the next 50 years employed some 400 artists, often former Lambeth School of Art students. Doulton championed individuality, innovation and versatility, and his modellers and decorators (many of them women) used a wide range of techniques and decorative treatments to produce both unique, artist-signed, and limited edition pieces. Matilda S. Adams is recorded as a faience department artist from 1882-1886, but the date on this vase indicates she was already employed in 1978.
