Today, Royal Doulton is a world-class brand in quintessential British tableware, collectable figurines, crystal and glass, and giftware too. Yet it had truly down to earth origins. Thanks to stoneware, the business that subsequently focused on the Doulton family name took full advantage of the revolution in sanitation during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). It established the worlds first stoneware pipe factory and went on to become Britains top Victorian manufacturer of sanitary ware. one of the world’s foremost brands, Royal Doulton produces a wide range of product from tableware and stemware through to collectables, nursery ware and gifts. The brand has collaborated with Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay for a number of years and launches Maze, a new Gordon Ramsay kitchen collection this Spring.
