This is a Doulton Lambeth stoneware jardiniere of cream ground
with white, green and blue figural paste design, with date stamp 1881
and standard impressed mark used c.1880-1902, as well as artist stamps.
John Doulton and his partner John Watts established a pottery and
porcelain in Lambeth, south London in 1815. Developed by his son Henry
Doulton, it became Britain’s leading manufacturer of sanitary wares and
other industrial ceramics as well as a major producer of art pottery and
of ornamental and commemorative pieces, and tablewares.
In 1877, Doulton took over the Nile Street Burslem factory of Pinder
Bourne, where tablewares and Art Pottery were being produced alongside
industrial ceramics. By 1882, this branch of Doulton’s operation was
making bone china (porcelain containing bone ash).
The Lambeth Studio in London continued in existence until 1956, and
since then Doulton production has been concentrated at Burslem.
Having taken over many of its rivals both in industrial and decorative
wares, the Royal Doulton Group is now the largest manufacturer of
ceramics in Britain.
