A Brief History
Royal Doulton was founded through hard work and perseverance. The founder started as an apprentice and worked his way up until he had become a master potter. In collaboration with two others he started a small pottery mill and began to produce ceramics for the bulk of England. Today the company operates 5 ceramic companies, 4 being in England and the final company being located in Indonesia. Royal Doulton also produces fine glassware with this company being situated in Scotland.
Doulton has not been the only child to ever work for the company either. His own sons are among the rank and file, as is also Charles Dickens. Dickens spent a spell of his childhood affixing labels on bottles for the company. Their reputation is unmatched. They produce china service for the likes of the Royal Family, the House of Lords (in England), embassies and luxury hotels throughout the world.
The Royal Doulton company was one of the first to begin to produce figurines. At first these items served a two fold purpose. They were figurines but were also creamers, small teapots, and vases. Today the general housewares and figurines are two separate departments but still retain their level of high quality and workmanship.
