Regency HN1752 finds a home in Doulton’s famous seriesware pattern Historic England!

A few years ago I spotted the tray below and instantly recognised my figure Regency as the character in the scene!

The seriesware picture is faithfully copied from Harradine’s figure, save that the riding crop has changed hands and a feather has been added to the tricorn hat!

The story behind the seriesware pattern is that the lady is Dorothy Vernon, daughter of Sir George Vernon who owned Haddon Hall, who runs off with the son of the Earl of Rutland – a union opposed by the parents probably because of religious differences!

The series was introduced in 1938 and withdrawn by the early 1950’s.

Once again Doulton surprises us with this link between the figure range and seriesware!
