Royal Doulton

John Doulton and John Watts founded in 1815 the company using the name Doulton & Co. In the beginning this manufacturer specialized in industrial stoneware and decorative garden pottery.

Much later, John Doulton’s son, Henry, in association with John Sparkes started in 1871 the production of art pottery that was very well regarded. In 1901, King Edward VII bestowed upon the company the right to use the word “Royal” preceding its name. At that point the company changed its name to Royal Doulton.

Its artisans developed an enviable reputation for their figurines, character jugs and vases as well as for its many china patterns.

Eventually Royal Doulton took over Minton and Royal Albert. The company is now part of the Waterford Wedgwood group.
