Welcome to Doulton4Collectors' website.
Here you will find an exciting choice of about 100 items of antique Doulton that are decorative, interesting, available and affordable. All made in the last quarter of the 19th century or the first 35 years of the 20th century. Even if you just wish to know more about something you own, do get in touch. We will learn from you and hopefully you will get help from us.
Doulton4Collectors is a small company that ships historic pieces of Doulton worldwide. My name is Martin Ham, and I operate this website as a retirement project that allows me, firstly to deal in beautiful objects, and secondly to be in contact with people with the same enthusiasm.
At present, for relatively little cost, you can buy an item that can be displayed and enjoyed every day, and that will with luck be an ever-appreciating asset.
Doulton needs little introduction as it is a household name. The firm started with salt-glazed items such as drains, and progressed through the 19th Century by making items of increasing complexity and beauty; until in 1902, when the King (Edward VII) permitted the use of the word Royal in the title.

Of the many types of ceramic made by Doulton and later by Royal Doulton, we offer two types. The earlier is Doulton Lambeth stoneware, dating from the 1870s till 1902 and the later is the Royal Doulton Art Nouveau and Art Deco stoneware which was made during the first decades of the 20th Century.
