Subject: Freda Doughty

In 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 Directors of Royal Worcester was staying with a cousin of Freda Doughty 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. Learn more about Freda Doughty and other factory workers.
