Royal Doulton’s famous ‘Witches’ pattern.

Thanks to the team at Seaway China for the images used here. 

  
When it comes to hard to find seriesware patterns, Doulton’s ‘Witches’ series is one of the most difficult to find today! 

  
Here is a rare three piece teaset including teapot, milk and sugar – all in wonderful original condition that is even more unusual!

  
Introduced in 1906 examples of this series ware pattern are among the hardest to trace today. It’s precise date of withdrawal is unknown but I can imagine the ‘by 1928’ is simply a guesstimate and in reality production would have been much more limited given its scarcity today.

  
As with all seriesware patterns a collection of one theme makes a real statement and the pleasure of collecting and searching out that rare item is what drives collectors to continue!
