Royal Doulton Country Garden
Royal Doulton Country Garden Joan Teapot; D.5429; era 1933 to 1942
There where three patterns numbers issued against this series:-
D4932 issued circa 1929In volume two and volume five of Royal Doulton series ware; Louise Irvine identifies 8 scenes belonging to this series and I have added a ninth scene. The ninth scene is the landscape with a central tree which decorates the off side of many of the items. I believe this scene should be listed as part of the series as it is unique to this series.
D5429 issued circa 1933
D5825 issued circa 1937

"Afternoon Tea" Cake Tray
D.4932; Dated July 1932
25 cm (9.75") across handle & 19 cm (7.5") wide
These cake trays come with an EPN&S handle that fits into the set of holes that are located on each end. These trays are not a very common shape to find, it is very rare to find them with there handle intact. All of the examples of this shape that I have seen seem to date from the 1930's onwards (of course as soon as I say this is the rule some swine is going to find an exception).
