In 1871 Hannah Barlow (1851-1916) was the first female artist to be employed at the Doulton pottery studio in Lambeth. Sir Henry Doulton championed women artists and by 1881 his firm employed 231 women. Hannah lived with sisters Florence and Lucy (both Doulton pottery artists) at 55 Loughborough Park from 1880-93.
From a presentation album given to Sir Henry by the women to celebrate the 10th anniversary of women artists at Doulton.
