Royal Doulton

The beginnings of Royal Doulton

John Doulton founded Doulton Lambeth pottery in 1815 with John Watts. The factory was a tiny pottery located in Lambeth near London, England. They produced salt glazed utilitarian items and pitchers, plain figural bottles, and stoneware items. The company also found financial success in the manufacture of sewage pipes in the 1840s. 

From 1858 until his death, John Doulton directed Doulton and Watts Pottery in Lambeth, England. After John Watts retired from the company, John Doulton began experimenting with a more decorative pottery line. Many glazes and decorative effects were developed including faience, impasto, silicon, carrara, marqueterie, chine, and rouge flambe. The factory operated in Lambeth until 1956. In the late 19th century at the original Lambeth location, fine artwares were decorated by artists including Hannah Barlow, Arthur Barlow, George Tinsworth, and J. McLennan.

Sir Henry Doulton, the second generation

Henry Doulton, the second son of John Doulton, joined the firm in 1835 and brought with him new technological innovations to the production of ceramics including a steam driven potters' wheel which put the business ahead of its competition. Production then expanded to include hand-decorated stoneware. 

In 1878, Sir Henry Doulton purchased Pinder, Bourne and Company of Burslem. Queen Victoria knighted Henry Doulton in 1887 for his innovations in the ceramic art. In 1882, the company became Doulton and Company, Ltd. 
In 1882, a second factory was built in Burslem which still continues to produce the famous figurines, jugs, and table wares. It added porcelain production and earthenware production to its offerings in 1884. Also in 1884, Doulton added decorated porcelain to the other production lines. Doulton figures were made at the Burslem plants from 1890 until 1978. Stoneware production ceased at Lambeth in 1956.

Doulton's high quality

The three main ingredients for Royal Doulton wares include cornish stone, china clay, and calcined bone ash. This results in a translucent, but strong body. More than 2000 different figures have been produced by Royal Doulton over the years. Doulton's Rouge Flambe (veined sung) is high glazed, strong colored wares noted for its fine modeling and exquisite colors used in the animal items in the line.  Nearly all Royal Doulton figures are made at the Burslem factory today. The production of porcelain also continues today at Burslem.

Serial wares

Some of the more prominent and popular figures are serial wares. For instance, the Gibson Girl series by Royal Doulton was introduced in 1901 (plates). The series was drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. Dickensware pieces by Royal Doulton were produced, based on the writings of Charles Dickens, from 1911 to the early 1940s.  The Robin Hood series by Royal Doulton was introduced in 1914 based on the famous tale of the hero and his merry men.  Works based on Shakespeare's characters resulted in two series of production items by Royal Doulton. Shakespeare's series #1 portrays scenes from the plays were made from 1914 until World War II and Shakespeare's series #2 was made from 1906 until 1974 featuring decorative characters from the writings. The Nursery Rhymes series were first produced in earthenware in 1930 and later in bone china and have become a very popular Royal Doulton line.  The Bunnykins series were produced from 1933 for children and over 150 bunnykins scenes have been designed. The most valuable Bunnykins pieces were signed by artist Barbara Vernon for Royal Doulton.
