Royal Doulton has been producing porcelain ceramics and dinnerware for approximately 200 years. From a meager beginning in 1815, John Doulton amassed one of the largest pottery and porcelain factories the world has ever know.
This wonderful Labrador dog figurine was designed by Warren Platt for the Beswick Porcelain Company. Beswick was purchased by Royal Doulton in 1969 and continued to produce the Beswick models with Beswick and Royal Doulton backstamps. This figure, circa 1990, is all black with glossy glaze. It stands 4 3/4" in height and 8" in length. A partial Royal Doulton backstamp, which was used from 1932-2000, is on the base of one foot. It will come with the original box. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. A great figurine of mans' best friend.
