Complete with its original lid, this Royal Doulton Humidor measures just under 6 1/2" inches tall and just under 5" wide across its base. There is a sterling silver rim, and the sides have two different golf scenes that include a golfer and his caddie.
Kingsware was developed by Charles Noke and produced between 1898 and 1939. No other factory in the world has been able to recreate the same lustrous finish. Here's a bit of info off the web about Kingsware, from the Doulton Collectors Club.com:
"One of the most collectible Doulton wares remains Kingsware. Produced between 1898 and 1939, Kingsware was the brain child of Burselm’s legendary Art Director Charles Noke, and totally unique to Doulton and one which no other factory has managed to replicate ever since. The unique effect was achieved by painting the design in coloured slips on the inside of the plaster mould, before adding the dark brown slip that would form the body of the piece."
A very lovely piece.
