We looked at collecting and assembling a collection of red Royal Doulton figures a few weeks ago, and here is another theme to make a display – heavenly blues and the odd purple too!
In the period before WWII, Doulton experimented greatly with various colourways of their figures, the most popular colours being red, pink, green and of course blue.
Whilst red and pink were clearly the best sellers much like today, collectors nowadays seek out the most unusual colourways for their collections and many of these are these blue figures.
Popular figures such as Maureen, Marguerite, Day Dreams and a handful of others can be tracked down in beautiful bluey hues and a grouping of these unusual ladies makes an eye catching display. Ironically some figures that one would expect to see in blue have never been found, one such figure being Pyjamas HN1942, that I think would be perfect in blue!
Perhaps you have other figures to add to this ‘stream’ of blue ladies or other collecting themes that you follow? If so do share via our Facebook page ‘Doulton Collectors Club’.
