Doulton ladies’ sleek 1930’s style! 

  If the 1920’s were typified by ‘Putting on the ritz’ then the 1930’s were about sleek lines and glamour. 

Typically, Doulton once again responded to the fashion of the times with a handful of designs inspired straight out of early 1930’s fashion magazines. Indeed we know that Mrs Harradine was a fan of a magazine called Britannia & Eve, as her husband based his figure Pamela on a cover girl from 1930. 

Even the names chosen for this select band of ladies represent their time, with stylish names such as Clothilde, Aileen and Gloria. 

Once again Doulton figures can be truly said to have represented their times, just as they had in the 1920’s with perennial favourites such as Pierette and Butterfly in their party costumes and as they would at the end of the 1930’s with Hollywood inspired glamour including The Mirror and Nadine.
