Henry Doulton
Birth: Jul. 25, 1820
Lambeth
Greater London, England
Death: Nov. 18, 1897
Kensington
Greater London, England

Son of John Doulton, he joined the pottery business at the age of 15 and took over father's company after his death. It was his genius that propelled the company forward to reach artistic heights. Demands for ceramic products of a utilitarian nature were the primary mission of the company through the 1860's until Henry Doulton aligned the company with the nearby Lambeth School of Art. During the 1870's pieces designed by artists were fired in the Doulton kilns and drew the favorable attention of art critics, the general public and even Queen Victoria, who ordered pieces for Windsor Castle. In 1901 Edward VII granted a Royal Warrant and additionally the right to add the word Royal to the companies name, so forming "Royal Doulton."  (bio by: julia&keld)
