Information provided by The Berton and Eastbridge UK on the artist Freda Doughty

n the early 1930s Royal Worcester was on the brink of ruin. But a rescue package was at hand and Charles Dyson Perrins bought the company, supplementing the worker’s wages out of his own pocket until the business was out of danger.
A new group of modellers– nearly all of them women – were brought in to enliven Royal Worcester’s range. One of the Director’s of Royal Worcester was staying with Freda’s cousin and on seeing examples of Freda’s work he asked her to make something to submit to Worcester. Her first four models of children were an immediate success and led to a long and fruitful partnership.
Freda designed over 100 models, most of which were very popular. Her figures were modeled from children who used to play in the garden of her home in Kent that she shared with her elder sister Dorothy.
Miss Doughty passed in 1972.
