Wild Rose - Roses G
Royal Doulton Wild Rose Close Up
The Wild Rose series, or as Doulton originally called it “Roses G”, was introduced in 1940 and it was in production until circa 1959. It was popular in its day and it is still popular today with a die hard band of collectors not only here in Australia and New Zealand, but right across the world from Canada to the UK and then back to the USA. It is quite easy to see the appeal, the magnificent old world style roses hand painted in crimson and a dusky pink through to the two tone deep blue, grey ground. Nothing looks quite as fine as a massed collection of Wild rose.

Royal Doulton Wild Rose Vases

While Wild Rose is a single scene series, there are countless subtle variations to the scene as it was hand painted and no two examples are alike. There are also variations in the actual ground, often the ground that has more blue is more desired by collectors. Dating Wild Rose to an exact year is quite possible as many of the flat items have an impressed date code or have a number just to the right of the crown in the maker’s mark which is also a dating code (example on right). This dating code works like this, the base year is 1927, so you add the numeral that appears just to the left of the crown to 1927 and you get the production year, in the case of the example below the numeral is a 20 so the vase from which this mark was taken was produced in 1947.

Royal Doulton Makers MarkRoyal Doulton Makers Mark


If there is no “A” in the makers mark (example above on left), then it was produced before 1942. There are two pattern numbers set against this series:-

D6177 introduced circa 1940
D6227 introduced circa 1941

The Wild Rose series was put on at least 24 shapes and some of these shapes come in more that one size, like the Lygon Jug which I belive comes in 4 sizes. There is also a wall charger, I recently found one of these at a local auction, but as the colours where poor I did not bother to purchase it. By my count there are 27 diiferent shapes and sizes to make up a full suite.
