Royal Doulton, the English ceramics maker, is well known for manufacturing tankards, storage jars, stonewares, and bathroom ceramics. The company produced its wares with the “Doulton and Co.” mark until it received a royal warrant in 1901. It subsequently switched to the “Royal Doulton” stamp. The earliest Doulton pieces featured the artist’s signature or monogram underneath. One such highly rare figurine of a bearded man in blue with a plumed turban is a key highlight of the upcoming two-day sale from Lion and Unicorn. The backstamp, which reads “Potted by Doulton and Co.,” indicates the piece belongs to the pre-royal warrant period. Another very rare Royal Doulton figurine on offer is a red flambé glaze ape character with a dunce cap and book. The deep red with smudges of purple and turquoise results from a distinct firing method that utilizes copper.
The sale also offers a glazed piece by artists Charles Vyse and Barbara Waller. The earthenware figurine depicts the legend of St. George, picturing the knight atop his horse and slaying a dragon. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Lion and Unicorn.
