Reg Johnson Studio Potter
Mr Johnson has been described as a "larger than life character," and this can be seen by the wonderful items that he created.
Reginald Johnson was born in October 1909. He became a student at Burslem College of Art at the age of 12, where he studied under Gordon Forsythe and Harry Tittensor. Reg Johnson joined Royal Doulton at the age of 14 in 1923, he was the only student to receive direct tuition from the renowned art director at the time, Charles Noke. One of his first recorded pieces was an imposing Cathedral vase which was modelled by Charles Noke and painted by Reg Johnson.
Reginald Johnson was well known for special items of pottery and was responsible for producing limited edition "loving cups" for royal occasions. He later became a design director for Royal Doulton, where he mainly worked on Paragon and Royal Albert.
Reginald Johnson modelled character figures in the Royal Doulton style at his own studio, these pieces were individually potted and hand-painted for his own signature collection.
We have several Reg Johnson Studio figures in our June 10th, Antiques, Collectables & Fine Art Sale.
