Lot Notes: Royal Doulton is an English ceramic manufacturing company which began in 1815. Operating originally in Vauxhall, London, later moving to Lambeth, in 1882 it opened a factory in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent in which it proceeded to make considerable efforts to get a reputation for design making bone china tablewares and decorative items.
From the start the business produced a wide range of utilitarian wares, mostly stonewares, including items such as storage jars and tankards. It then later moved into pipes for drains, lavatories and other bathroom ceramics. From 1853 to 1902 its wares were marked Doulton & Co., then from 1902, when a royal warrant was given, Royal Doulton.
