  Royal Doulton Dickens Ware

3 Royal Doulton Dickens Ware Hat Pin Stands  

Items from the Dressing Table

Pelican Trinket Set

A Complete Royal Doulton Pelican Dressing Table Set 

The Pelican Trinket Set consitst of a Tray, two candlesticks, a pin tray, a puff box, pomade box and a powder box. To date I have only ever seen one intact Trinket Set; if you have one don't split it up, sell it as one lot. 

 Pelican Tray

production era 1908 to 1931

9cm (3.6") across and 5 cm (2") tall

As far as I have been able to make out the Pomade Box and the Powder Box are the same. A Pelican Dressing Table Set consists of a Pomade and a Powder box, but they seem to be identical.  

 

 

Pelican Puff Box

9 cm (3.6") across and 10 cm (4") tall

You will note the the lids on the above two boxes vary, one is decorated with stars while the other has fine filligree work.

 Candle Sticks - Pewter

I don't think these came out of the Royal Doulton Factory like this, I have never seen pewter used by Royal Doulton. On close inspection they appear to be 2 Dickens Ware mustard pots with the pewter work added later. These were purchased out of the US, so I would sugest that this pewter work may even have been done in the US.

Wow they sound very interesting, looking forward seeing them in the raw. Quoting H.P.:
Dear Bruce, I have been looking through your Dickens site re. candle sticks. A contact in the USA emailed me a pic of a pair of pewter candlesticks with earthenware middles of the Artful Dodger/Mark Tapley inc sweeping pewter handles. Have you ever seen pewterware in Dickens?? I could send pics, if that would assist. Thanks H.P.
