Royal Doulton Gleaners & Gipsies

Image

Royal Doulton Gleaners & Gipsies 15" charger; D5624; dated September 1937

Royal Doulton created a special back stamp for the Gleaners & Gipsies series, of which there are two variations, the more common says “English Old Scenes, The Gleaners”; while the rarer of the two stamps says “English Old Scenes, The Gipsies”.I have no idea why they did this so if you have a suggestion we would love to hear it.

I am sorry but Nicholnack does not offer a valuation service. I do however buy stock, but at the current time I am not looking to increase my stock of Gleaners unless it is something unusual.Quoting Jan Ward:
Hello. I have a plate from 'The Gleaners Scenes' series, number 2: 'Man leading donkey with his family', pattern number 6123, with the 2 stamps illustrated above on the back. It is in excellent condition and I was hoping you could give me an estimate of what it might worth if I were to sell it. Thank you.

It sounds right to me; items with a small base often only have The Gleaners mark as there was not enough room to put both marks on - I have at least two examples here at the moment the same.Quoting Donna Erdel:
Hello, I have a small jug from the cleaners and gipsies series.It is a combination of picture number 4 and 10 ie on the front and the back.It has the back stamp as per your first photo for backstamps saying cleaners, however it does not have the usual royal doulton lion above the crown.It does have the 3191 painted on it brownon the bottom also.My question is does this make it a copy because of the difference.Kind regards.
