Edith Lupton worked at Doulton as an artist between c1875 and c1890. She is believed to have retired about c1890 but unusually, is thought to have continued to do freelance work up until her death in 1896. Initially known for her incised foliate designs, she later branched out to include delicate pâte-sur- pâte painting as well as perforated and carved decoration. Mary Aitken work as an assistant from 1875 to 1894. Alice M Herapath started working at Doulton as an assistant together with her sister, Edith in 1882.
