In 1901 King Edward VII sold the Burslem factory the Royal Warrant, allowing the business to adopt new markings and a new name, Royal Doulton. In 1939 Gilbert Bayes created the friezes that showed the history of pottery through the ages.They were executed in terra cotta with glazed details to the design of Tinworth.By this time Doulton was popular for stoneware and ceramics, under the artistic direction of John Slater, who worked with figurines, vases, character jugs, and decorative pieces designed by the prolific Leslie Harradine.Virtually all Doulton tableware has a black printed Doulton ‘mark’ or ‘backstamp’ applied to the underside of the piece.The mark was varied from time to time and the table below includes the major marks that appear on tableware manufactured at the Doulton (Burslem) factory (Series Ware and the Lambeth Stonewares often have special marks).
