One particular detail which today remains very popular with collectors throughout the world is the addition of hand modelled flowers.
These ranged from moulded tulips, to lilies, to daffodils, to forget-me-nots, to the more typical roses found on many 1930’s Doulton ladies.
Some of the most sought after figures today happen to be those with flowers and you can clearly understand their popularity when you see the extra detail, flowers make to these figures. During WWII restrictions figures were often simplified and I have seen versions of Harradine’s Honey carrying entirely moulded flowers!
In the post WWII period the number of flowers was reduced on popular figures including Roseanna and even changed on others including Day Dreams, which incidentally also became ‘Daydreams’ at some point in the late 1940’s.
