Royal Doulton is a classic English brand name in tableware and ceramics with a pedigree dating back to 1815, when John Doulton used his life's savings to launch a partnership with Martha Jones and John Watts at a stoneware factory in Lambeth, London. Today, Royal Doulton is a world-class brand in quintessential British tableware, collectable figurines, crystal, glass and giftware. Inspired by the brand’s London origins the new Royal Doulton embraces the urban culture and eclectic style of the city, appealing to design conscious consumers. The new products encourage self-expression and are designed to give consumers everything they need to create a relaxed and sociable home. Royal Doulton’s mission is to create good quality, contemporary designs, that add enjoyment to everyday life – a clean look with that something extra to really stand out from the crowd.
