The front cover of a late 19th Century Sanitaryware catalogue
Hardly the topic of a long article but the discovery of a box of original Doulton glass plates used for their catalogues and adverts from the 19th and early 20th Centuries inspired me to share some of them with you all as I imagine they were long discarded as not interesting. Aside from the Victorian style used, you can get a glimpse of the sheer variety of customers that Doultons must have supplied from grand hotels to shipbuilders!! Over the years I have come across a number of early ‘Sanitaryware’ catalogues where such items as the ones in the pictures are illustrated.
Anyway, a glimpse into the past….enjoy!
Although there are many more slides….I wonder how many toilets we want to look at in one go, so all for now! Thanks for reading!
