Royal Doulton Tableware

Saturday, 24 April 2010

Royal Doulton tablewareWhen John Doulton, a plain potter, established a company in 1815 to manufacture tubes and plumbing in Lambeth on the south-east of London, nobody could expect that in somewhat 200 years the establishment will become one of the legendary brands to manufacture china ware. That was difficult on the first stage, though. The company became the leading manufacture to make the revolution in sanitation thanks to stoneware during the reign of Queen Victoria governed by his son, Sir Henry Doulton. The company was the first stone pipe factory to lead in sanitary ware sphere.

Sir Henry Doulton when proceeded to governing the company saved some more assets and paid attention to the production of decorative items, and soon afterwards he established one of the first artistic studio in Great Britain in 1860, the «Lambeth Art Pottery».

John Doulton worked with his son Henry to develop their family business, and their portfolio was sooner completed with artistic pottery, ultimately embracing commemorative, ornamental, and tableware products which made them more popular.

In 1871, Henry had launched the Lambeth Studio with local designers and artists who experimented with a variety of materials and glazes in an industrial setting. In 1877 Henry Doulton bought a majority of shares at the factory at Burslem in Stoke-on-Trent, a city known as The Potteries and home of English bone china. Other famous potters that settled there were Wedgwood, Minton, Beswick, and Royal Adderly. Yet, the place turned into the center for potters, given its wealth of raw materials including clay for earthenware, coal to heat the kilns, as well as lead and salt for glazing they decorate their tableware with.

Ten years later, Henry Lambeth became the first ceramist who was appreciated and pleased by the royal attention and the Queen Victoria conferred the knighthood upon him for the contribution into the development of science and artistic ceramics. Afterwards the royal attention to the china company by Doulton was ensured, and in the year 1901 the Kind Edward VII highly estimated the quality of Doulton chinaware that was awarded the Royal Warrant and granting the company the honor to use the word Royal to the name of the company.

In 1966 году Royal Doulton Company received another royal award for the technical developments and contribution in china manufacture. Therewith, Doulton left all other British ceramists behind. The royal family has always remembered about the Royal Doulton Company and the King George, Elizabeth II and the Princess Diane visited the manufacture from time to time. The tableware by this company is used to serve the tables at royal palaces presidential residencies and many collections are seen in Buckingham Palace.

Every set of table ware is unique and original, as everything here in Britain. «Fusion Platinum» possesses the innovative, special and confident peculiarities; it is the elegant event to turn the dinner into the ceremony. The film of platinum and vivid courage emphasizes the unique style of the collection, expressing cold English style, though.

However, everything may be removed and only the shape and whiteness of the genius English bone china is left. And the set «Fusion White» was prepared in this way, exactly following minimalism style.

The ceremonial events require something very special. Thus, Royal Doulton Collection «Naples», where the bone china strikes with the delicacy and neo-classic lines and monochrome pattern amaze with their fine splendor and add the dinner some home elegance. The tableware from this collection is wonderful and fits every occasion, especially home holidays when the whole family reunions. The official functions are good to use far colder tableware of silver and platinum color from «Naples Platinum» collection.

We admit that we need and use the tableware not only for functions and special events. We eat every day, and every day we should use the ware to get satisfied esthetically.

«Val d'Or» collection by Royal Doulton is simple, on the one hand, and solemn, on the other hand, for various events. The traditional snow-white bone china with the gold at the edges is the luxury of simplicity on the table.

Once you failed to find the tableware suitable for your taste and budget, pay attention to two more reputed brands presented by the Royal Doulton trademark: Minton and Royal Albert. Minton is thought to be the most famous china ware of the XIX century and one of the most expensive among others. Hand painting and plenty of gold makes every single plate a real piece of art work. Royal Albert presents old good classic. The Old Country Roses Collection is one of the most demanded designs for china ware (blooming roses, painting in gold). The Old Country Roses & Chintz Collection is the chintz interpretation of the previous pattern when 22 carats of gold is printed onto each piece of table ware. And finally, the Moonlight Rose Collection makes us happy with the blue roses with the golden trimming, as if roses full of moonlight decorate the table you serve for dinner.
