The illustrator: Edith Lupton worked for Doultons from about 1875 to 1890. She was a designer in her own right and also assisted other top-line Doulton artists with their projects. Her early work was influenced by Arthur and Hannah Barlow, both of whom joined Doultons in 1871. This work was of a glazed stylistic foliate nature. Later she developed her skills and the variety of her work increased. Over the years at Doultons she cooperated on items with Arthur and Hannah Barlow, Eliza Simmance, Mark Marshall, and other top designers and artists.
