Francis Howard Spear (1902-79) was a stained glass artist and lithographer. He trained at the Central School of Art and the Royal College of Art, and was an assistant to Martin Travers, who influenced his style. Many early works were made at The Glass House, Fulham where he also had a studio from 1935 until 1940. After the war he set up his own studio, first in London and finally in Reigate, Surrey.
