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 beautiful Royal Doulton figurine entitled "Midinette" was produced from 1952-1965. Designed by Leslie Harradine, as part of the classics series. It portrays a lovely young lady, head slight tilted and glancing to her left, graciously holding her shirt with her left hand and holding a stylish hat box her her right. She is attired in a soft gray floor length gown, full length sleeves and classic gray hat with red adornment. The sophisticated expression on her face is framed by soft black curls peeking from under her hat.
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 7 1/4" in height and is stamped in green with the Royal Doulton logo, "Bone China" and "Midinette"; "HN 2090" in hand script. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. This is a wonderful figurine for the Royal Doulton or figurine collector.
