 Royal Doulton Romany

 Royal Doulton Heatherlea Cake Plate
 Royal Doulton Romany Heatherlea Plate - D5027 - dated code March 1930

 

The Romany series was introduced circa 1930 and it was withdrawn from production circa 1942. There are two pattern numbers issued against this series, each pattern number is destictive:

D.5027 which was issued in 1930

D.5809 which was issued in 1938

The D.5027 has a yellow airbrushed border and the pattern in general is much yellower. Where D.5809 is much whiter and it has a high gloss finish. This is clearly evident in the plates photographed above (D.5027) and below (D.5809).

It is my belief that the Romany series had two small windows of production. Pattern D.5027 was produced during 1930 and 1931; pattern D.5809 was produced during 1938 to 1940 period. I have seen no other evidance for this other than the observation of the impressed date stamps on the back of plates and bowls. This is a rare series, to date I have only ever handled maybe 20 items in this series,  of which only 3 have been pattern number D.5809 and the rest where D.5027. To date I have identified 8 scnes. I would love some input into this from anyone with dated examples of this pattern.
