Full image caption

Illustration of a Lambeth pottery from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. The pottery is not named but could perhaps be Doultons which, in 1878, Edward Walford described as the chief pottery in Lambeth ('Old and New London' volume 6 p. 424). 'The chief work in this line [pottery manufacture] now carried on in Lambeth is at the pottery of the Messrs. Doulton, the producers of the celebrated Lambeth faience, and whose name is worthy of record as the revivers, in the last few years, of the manufacture of Flemish and German stoneware, which promise to make the name of Lambeth celebrated once more in the annals of art'.
