Collecting Doulton roses! 

Whenever one thinks of Doulton roses the names Edward Raby and perhaps the successor to his ‘throne’ Percy Curnock spring immediately to mind. However, there was a range of Doulton decorated with ‘print and tint’ roses from the early years of the 20th Century that were intended to be more accessible to collectors. 

 Typically this range of wares were produced on a cobalt blue ground and occasionally they had further gilded embellishment such as in the above illustration.

 More recently I came across the turquoise  jug pictured below decorated using the same rose images as were found on the cobalt blue versions. As always, Doulton never fails to throw up surprises to keep us on our toes!
