Vintage 4-piece Set of ‘Royal Doulton’ Raby Rose Pattern Plates. Made in England. ‘Royal Doulton’ is an English ceramic and home accessories manufacturer founded in 1815. Operating originally in Vauxhall, London, later moving to Lambeth, in 1882 it opened a factory in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, in the centre of English pottery. From the start the backbone of the business was a wide range of utilitarian wares, mostly stonewares, including storage jars, tankards and the like, and later extending to pipes for drains, lavatories and other bathroom ceramics. From 1853 to 1902 its wares were marked ‘Doulton & Co.’, then from 1902, when a royal warrant was given, ‘Royal Doulton’. It always made some more decorative wares, initially still mostly stoneware, and from the 1860s the firm made considerable efforts to get a reputation for design, in which it was largely successful, as one of the first British makers of art pottery. In 1882 the firm bought a Burslem factory, which was mainly intended for making bone china tablewares and decorative items. It was a latecomer in this market compared to firms such as ‘Royal Crown Derby’, ‘Royal Worcester’, ,Wedgwood’, ‘Spode’ and ‘Mintons’, but made a place for itself in the later 19th century. Today ‘Royal Doulton’ mainly produces tableware and figurines, but also cookware, glassware, and other home accessories such as linens, curtains and lighting. Three of its brands were ‘Royal Doulton’, ‘Royal Albert’, and ‘Mintons’. These brands are now owned by ‘WWRD Holdings Limited’. On 2 July 2015, the acquisition of ‘WWRD’ by the Finnish company ‘Fiskars Corporation’ was completed. Set consists of x3 Small Plates, x1 Small Serving Dish. Comes in Original Condition.
