With the popularity of online auctions over the past decade, many Royal Doulton figurines have changed hands from person to person.

This has made the numbers of already hard-to-find and antique Royal Doulton figurines that are still in pristine condition ever smaller!

Royal Doulton introduced its figurines in the early part of the 20th century. The exquisite artistry of Royal Doulton’s master craftsmen such as Charles Noke and Leslie Harradine became of great interest to collectors of fine china from the beginning. These fantastic works of art were created individually and hand-painted by seasoned artists in the factory in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent throughout the 20th century. The majority of figurines were only produced for a short period of time, thus, making each Royal Doulton figurine greatly collectible. The exquisite detailing and beauty of these hand-made objects of art are cherished by collectors throughout the world.
The authenticity of the Royal Doulton figurine is in its backstamp markings. The Royal Doulton backstamp in the shape of a lion over a crown, is found at the base of the figurine. The majority of figurines also bear the name or title of the figurine as well as a number beginning with HN. The ‘HN’ stands for Harry Nixon who was the head of the Painting Department in the Burslem factory in the early part of the 20th century.
