The Queen liked the pieces so much that in 1887 she knighted Henry Doulton for his contributions to England's ceramic art.
Fourteen years later, King Edward the VII issued a Royal Warrant to the Doulton factory.
From its early beginning in 1815, the London-based Doulton Company grew to become one of the most well known pottery companies in the world.
Its products include dinnerware, giftware, cookware, porcelain, glassware, collectables, jewellery, linens, curtains and lighting.
Three of its brands were Royal Doulton, Royal Albert and Mintons.
These brands are now owned by WWRD Holdings Ltd (Waterford Crystal, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton), based in Barlaston near Stoke-on-Trent.
On 2 July 2015 the acquisition of WWRD by the Finnish company Fiskars Corporation was completed.
