Royal Doulton Fox Hunting "B" Series

Royal Doulton Fox Hunting B Bridge Set Shape 8148
Royal Doulton Fox Hunting B Bridge Set - Shape 8148

Royal Doulton’s Fox Hunting “B” series is a sibling of Fox Hunting “A” series. They are so closely aligned that very often the scenes from A series and the B series will appear together on Bridge sets.

The only other shape that Fox Hunting “B” seems to appear on is an Lemonade Jug and Mug that are done in relief. Often the Jug also has a scene from English Cottages on it.

Fox Hunting B comes on both Bone China and an Earthern Ware ground. At this stage I do not know what the Bone China pattern number is.  There are three pattern numbers set against this series for the Earthern Ware ground.

The Earthern Ware pattern numbers are:-

D5595 introduced 1935

D5656 introduced 1936

D5909 introduced 1938
 
To date I have never seen an item decerated with Fox Hunging "B" that I could date to latyer then 1940. so without further information I must conclude that Fox Hunting "B" was only in production from 1935 until 1940.
