The essence of this series is to design exquisite yet practical housewares, which are suitable for all the family. This series is now world-famous pottery; and to commemorate that heritage, Royal Doulton has created the 1815 pattern and added new decorative gift sets, including the 1955 launch of the Pushkin cat modeling sculptures. To make it even more special for this extraordinary year, all the gift sets produced this year are covered with the words "1815-2015.”


To make the 200th years series even more successful, Royal Doulton debuts the Prestige Collection. This set of figurines are modeled in the UK and produced in the finest bone china. Comprising of eminent figures, such as the Duke of Wellington and King George III, and iconic symbols such as The Lion; the Prestige Collection emphasizes inherently British influences. All of these characters are born in 1815 and have a considerable influence in society. This limited edition marks both Royal Doulton and the British History, which definitely made it a not to be missed collection.
