Made in England Circa 1882. The Royal Doulton Company was founded by John Doulton in England in 1815 and specialized in stoneware production. When John's son, Henry Doulton, joined the company in 1835, he brought many technologically advanced and improved techniques in ceramic production such as a steam driven potters' wheel. The company also branched into hand-decorated stoneware. Many famous Doulton figurines were made at the Burslem plants from 1890 to 1978. Henry Doulton was knighted in 1887 for his contributions to ceramic art and technology.
