There are a number of animal groups popular with collectors and which are fun to track down to complete the set.
Just like the piglets we looked at recently, there are six kittens in this set too, and conveniently three are ginger and three are brown, again allowing us to create a pleasant grouping.
These kittens, just like the piglets were the work of the great Peggy Davies when first apprenticed to Doulton. They were introduced in 1941 and withdrawn in the mid 1980’s.
As with all things a Doulton the longer an item is out of production, the more it is sought after and these kittens are no exception. Happy collecting!
