Later she produced designs for both Jesson Birket & Co and the Silversmiths A. E. Jones. She was awarded a gold medal by the board of Education at South Kensington in 1907 for a carved box subsequently bequeathed to Birmingham City Museum and Art Gallery. Her Sister Kathleen Stubbs was a talented book Binder exhibited regularly in Birmingham. Her work is characterized by these intricate strapwork designs and her earlier pieces were enhanced by blue/green pottery roundels such as you see here, made by Ruskin pottery.
