Hall’s association with Doulton began as a young teenager and would end with him leading a group of young painters and also leading the hand painting Seriesware department. In the intervening years Hall displayed his versatility by painting many important fine china dessert sets and services featuring flowers, fish, game and landscapes. He is recorded as being particularly famed for his floral subjects, but to date I haven’t personally found any! Perhaps someone out there can help?
