Everyone is familiar with Royal Doulton.
Founded in 1815, originally manufacturing items in Vauxhall, London, then moving premises to Lambeth, before opening their factory in Stoke-On-Trent, 1882 – the epicentre of English pottery making. The company is renowned for producing high quality ceramics and in particular, specialising in figural pieces.
Our 'Other Times, Other Places: Fine Furniture & Works of Art' auction, held on 13 October, certainly doesn't disappoint on that front! A superb range of Royal Doulton figures are on offer including some rare examples.
In lots 865 and 867 we find ‘Dawn’ and ‘Celia’, two semi-clad females issued by Doulton following the Deco trends of the 1930s and 40s. Two rare busts of ‘Glady’s and ‘Vera’ arrive to the auction soon after their standing counterparts. Estimated in the hundreds of pounds, these ladies will surely catch the eye of collectors the world over.
Lot 881 is a Royal Doulton figure of 'Triscilia', unusual in her vibrant yellows and oranges. She was issued 1932-1938 and comes with an estimate of £100 - £150.
There are too many to mention – one must browse the auction catalogue and place one’s bids before these figures fly to new homes.
