Francis C Pope
Francis Pope worked at Doulton Lambeth from 1880 to 1925, as well as being a freelance designer, working for others. A versatile artist, he produced designs in tubelined and brushlined designs, as well as simple gourd-like shapes, some of these with metallic finishes.
His work consisted of both one-off designs which were always signed, and also designs for other artists to produce in quantities; these were often only signed by the ceramic artists that worked on them.
His work is highly collectible.
