A chance find of a portrait plaque featuring a well known portrait of Sir Henry Doulton has inspired this piece.
Doulton’s Photographic ware is rare with examples dating between 1893-1905 approximately.
Early plate with a photographic image of Joseph Joachim, a popular violinist.
The method of transferring a photographic image on to transfer paper for application on to a china body was developed by John Slater and examples usually carry a simple Doulton mark and also the predictable “Slater’s Patent” stamp.
A pair of early Slater’s Patent photographic plates (subjects unknown).
Subjects range from famous stage personalities of the time to other period celebrities.

I ran across your post of a Doulton plate with the image of Joseph Joachim on it. I was wondering if I could share this on my website dedicated to JJ: http://www.josephjoachim.com
