Although Royal Doulton didn’t become ‘Royal’ until 1901, the Doulton brand was founded way back in 1815 on the Banks of the River Thames. Since then, their pottery & ceramics gained vast popularity and are now one of the most desirable and highly collectible products of the ceramic market. And Doulton popularity doesn’t appear to be diminishing anytime soon, with a tremendous number of beautiful pieces still being created today.
For this week’s ‘Item of The Week’, we bring you this eye-catching little beauty, named Pamela. This attractive figurine was designed by one of Royal Daulton’s leading artists Leslie Harradine in 1932, with this particular design being in production for just seven years, from 1931 to 1937. Leslie was a freelance designer for Royal Doulton, and had 6 children whom he adored. He clearly loved children and this was conveyed through his work as he was known for his colourful pieces, even creating a number of ceramic designs purely targeted towards the younger generation.
There are so many features and details that stand out on this particular figurine, and with reference to the aforementioned target audience, perhaps most notable is Pamela’s’ likeness to Snow White; with her jet-black hair & delicate pale skin, the resemblance is quite uncanny. In stark contrast, the vibrancy of Pamela’s dress is striking, and her demeanour is rather carefree and playful. She carries a pretty, floral bouquet loosely in her arms whilst gently holding her dress, which appears to be blowing in the wind, whilst her frilly collar sits delicately around her neck line.
This Beautiful lady is presented in excellent condition and would bring a great sense of fun (& colour) to your home wherever you chose to keep her. A pretty and much sought-after piece for your collection.
This figurine is being sold by Applecross Antiques for £1’000
