About Burslem

Classic English pottery covers the sideboard and fills the china cabinet, a riot of delicately painted rose pieces amid the blue and white patterned china. Manufactured in Burslem, England, in the heart of the areas known as "The Potteries," Royal Doulton is a familiar name among collectors of fine china. Teapots, teacups, pitchers, and platters are among the items marked Doulton Burslem, manufactured by the Royal Doulton Company between 1882 and 1902. Burslem also hosted several other potteries, which also made teapots and other china. Burslem teapots feature a wide variety of styles and patterns, but the Royal Doulton pieces are clearly marked on the bottom with marks associated with the company. If you are searching for an antique, vintage, or gently used Doulton Burslem piece for your collection of fine china, the reliable sellers on eBay provide an array of listings with detailed descriptions and photographs. The careful packaging and convenient shipping options bring your latest acquisition to your mailbox, ready to take its place in the china cabinet.
