Royal Doulton developed from a partnership between John Doulton, Martha Jones and John Watts, in 1815, with a factory at Vauxhall Walk, Lambeth, London. In 1820, the trade name changed to Doulton & Watts; and in 1853 took the name Doulton & Co, following the retirement of John Watts, merging with the company founded by John's son Henry, with premises at Lambeth High Street. And the rest is History. Production of figurines and serial wares began in 1901. In 1912/13, Charles Noke, launched a new group of Royal Doulton Figures, with a HN number on all wares.(HN for Harry Nixon, the artist in charge of painting the figures). Royal Doulton figurines are cherished worldwide for their elegance, character and outstanding craftsmanship.
