The first day of the upcoming two-day Ceramic Auction, offered by Whitley’s Auctioneers, will present figurines and porcelains by Royal Doulton and other companies. Doulton & Co. was formed in 1815. Originally specializing in storage jars and tankards, they later expanded to make pipes for drains and other bathroom-related ceramics. In 1902, the company was given a royal warrant, becoming Royal Doulton. They became largely known for their tableware and figurines during the 19th century. Available in this sale is a Royal Doulton prototype of a powder bowl, made for Dubarry Perfumery. This 1917 bowl is shaped like a woman in a flounced blue skirt and short blonde hair. One hand is behind her back holding a pink fan while the other rests on her chest. The piece is marked ‘Dubarry’ with the Royal Doulton stamp on the bottom.
A Doulton Burslem figure showing Ellen Terry as Queen Catharine will be highlighted as well. This porcelain figurine is colored in ivory with green and gold tints, standing nine inches tall. A complete set of six Royal Doulton Charles Dickens busts can also be found in the auction. Produced in 1930, these busts are modeled as characters from Dickens’ stories.
