*Royal Doulton Seriesware was the marketing genius of Charles Noke who joined Doulton at Burslem in 1889 and later became the companies Art Director. In conceptualising Royal Doulton's seriesware, Noke devised a scheme for employing a vast number of standard "blank shapes" including plates, vases, trays and jugs and decorating them with a wealth of popular imagery that was drawn from many Literary, Sporting, Geographic, Nostalgic and Historical sources. The premise was never to have items like trios, teasets or dinner sets "perfectly matching" - but to encourage people to attempt to collect all of the scenes in their chosen pattern.
