The origin of the designation Gloria Lustre is unknown but the name comes into use when Gordon Forsyth (the then Superintendent of Art Education in Stoke-on-Trent and a friend of AEGray) collaborated in the production of lustre ware: 'An outstanding feature will be the Gloria lustre, wherein the firm have utilised in some measure the services of Mr Gordon Forsyth' (Pottery & Glass Record Feb 1923 p358). Note that one of AEGray's grandchildren, born in 1929, was named Gloria.
