The Royal Doulton Company was one of the most renowned English companies producing tableware and collectibles, with a history dating back to 1815. The Royal Doulton Company began as a partnership between John Doulton, Martha Jones, and John Watts, with a factory at Vauxhall Walk, Lambeth, London. The business specialized in making stoneware articles, including decorative bottles and salt glaze sewer pipes. The company took the name Doulton in 1853.By this time Doulton had become one of the most popular brands of stoneware and ceramics, under the artistic direction of John Slater, who worked across a wide variety of figurines, vases, character jugs, and decorative pieces, many designed by the prolific and popular Leslie Harradine. Doulton products also came to the attention of the Royal family.
For almost 200 years, The Royal Doulton Company has specialized in fine bone china and porcelain for the table and collectibles. Royal Doulton, as evidenced by the name, enjoys the distinction of a "Royal Warrant". A Royal Warrant is bestowed upon people or companies who have regularly supplied members of the Royal Family with goods or services. It is regarded as a mark of supreme excellence and quality. King Edward awarded the first of five Royal Warrants to Royal Doulton in 1901.
The Doulton Company then became The Royal Doulton Company. Royal Doulton now holds two Royal Warrants. Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favourites list.
