Specialist Knowledge

Would you have spotted this unusual crocodilian ceramic? It’s a very rare Royal Doulton ‘Boy On A Crocodile’, which went on to sell at auction with us for £7,000.

A Happy Team

His name’s Jack… Jack Point. But do you know your jokers from your jesters? This version of the classic Jack Point is a Royal Doulton Prestige limited edition figure HN3925, celebrating the 85th anniversary of the Royal Doulton Figure Collection.

The decoration is based on the pattern book design of the earliest version introduced in 1918 and this particular figure, number 37 of 85, sold at auction for £620.

Pictured behind Jack, the 43cm tall Royal Doulton Prestige figure ‘The Charge Of The Light Brigade’ HN3718, designed and modelled by Alan Maslankowski, sold for £1,250 in the same sale.

Auction Action

No elephant in the room when Princess Badoura HN2081 went under the hammer! The Royal Doulton porcelain figurine sold at auction with us for £1,800.

An Aladdin’s Cave

A glorious array of Ruskin pottery features in an upcoming Single Owner Collection.
