Many lady painters were employed by top quality Staffordshire factories to heighten the market appeal of the various factories. As we know many of the early female painters were not permitted to sign their works. Most male painters were permitted to sign their works of art on porcelain and bone china. Of course we did at these times live in male dominated societies. By turn of the century, circa 1900, many artist both male and female were now permitted to sign their works of art on porcelain.

Of course as we know much transferware was produced at the time for export to the British colonies and the United States of America. The Britisher's love of flower gardens gave way to producing many hand painted pieces for the local market place. Some of the earlier factories assigned pattern numbers and painter's number rather than an identifying cartouche mark of the factory of production. Closer to the 1840s many china factories began to assign cartouche marks or backstamps to show factory of production.
