“Doin’ the Lambeth pot…”

This may interest readers fascinated by Stoke-on-Trent pottery history. A tour of Doulton’s London factory in 1895, Lambeth. The process of making and the production line was much the same there as in North Staffordshire.

“the good folks in Lambeth … call it “Doulton’s place,” and the big gates and the palatial buildings that enclose and comprise it are variously inscribed “Doulton and Co., Lambeth.” … I gathered that Messrs. Doulton and Co. possess about half-a-dozen “Pottery-Lands” scattered about in Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Lancashire, one at Paisley, and one in Paris.”
