In 1815, John Doulton was asked by Martha Jones to join her small pottery on the banks of the River Thames in London. Martha needed a business partner to join her and John Doulton, a talented potter was perfect for the job. He invested his life savings of £100 into the business and the Doulton & Watts pottery was born. The factory specialised in manufacturing salt-glaze and stoneware ceramics, stone jars, bottles and flasks. In 1854 it became known as Doulton and Co. A fan of the works was Queen Victoria who knighted Henry Doulton in 1887 for his services to ceramics and the advancement of ceramic art. In 1901, four years after Henry’s death, Edward VII granted Doulton to add the ‘Royal’ to their name.The products of the Doulton businesses were vast, exceptionally diverse, and are widely collected.
