This brightly coloured pattern will surely bring back memories of the historical royal times and is also perfect for creating new memories with family and friends.
Exquisitely decorated, this pattern was produced for 4 years by Royal Doulton London. Royal Doulton began in 1815 when a talented potter by the name of John Doulton went into business with Martha Jones, a widow, and John Watts, her foreman. Doulton & Watts started as a small pottery located on the banks of the River Thames in London. In 1854, John Watts retired from the business and it became known as Doulton & Company. It was also around this time that Henry, John Doulton’s son, took a more active role in the company. The business gained momentum in 1860 when they started employing students of the neighboring Lambeth School of Art. It was then that they started to be recognized by the royal family including Queen Victoria. And in 1901, King Edward VII granted permission to add Royal to their company name. To-date, Royal Doulton London has been in the business for more than 200 years, bringing centuries-old tradition of craftsmanship.
This pattern is composed of delicately modelled pieces. We particularly love the curvy teapot, creamer, and sugar bowl with lid. Truly a classic royal set!
