John Doulton and his son Henry established themselves as makers of fine English stoneware and though stoneware only allowed for a limited range of colours, they were able to produce a wide variety of items for the luxury market.

In 1922, Miniature figures of Charles Dickens characters were produced at Royal Doulton’s factory in Burslem until 1983 and there have been variations in ceramic bodies, size and backstamps over the years.The subjects of the jugs are very varied, from nautical heroes to literary stars, but the one thing they all have in common is top quality modelling with excellent detail.It is a great honour for the artists to have their work chosen as the ‘Jug of the Year’ and Stan Taylor currently holds the record with five awards, closely followed by David Biggs with four.The Doulton name and reputation continued to grow along with its extensive range, which included flambé ware, titanian ware, and bone china.Over the course of its long history the Doulton company has released popular collections of figures and other ceramics.
