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 this world has ever known.
This scarce Royal Doulton figurine entitled "Marguerite" was produced from 1940 - 1949. Designed by Leslie Harradine, this is one of the most popular figurines. It portrays a lovely lady holding a large bouquet of white daisies close to her face. She is attired in a long, flowing red gown with puff sleeves, white under-skirt and pastel pink bodice trimmed in light blue. Her upturned brimmed had matches her red gown with light blue under the brim, large dark blue bow and two large white feather adornments.
Arthur L. Harradine (known to Doulton collectors as Leslie) joined Doulton's Lambeth Studios in 1902 as an apprentice modeler. Working as a freelance artist, Harradine developed a wonderful gift for sculpting wind-blown ladies and flouncing damsels. Harradine’s figures are among the most collected Doulton masterpieces.
The figurine stands 8" in height and is stamped in green with the Royal Doulton logo, "Bone China", "Marguerite", "HN 1946", "RdNo 837485" and decorators insignia. This figurine was produced in 1943 because of the dating stamp "16" to the right of the logo mark. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Gorgeous.
