Royal Doulton's first pottery was established by John Doulton in the Lambeth area of London in 1815. His son, Henry Doulton, took over the running of the Lambeth pottery and was knighted for his services to the ceramic industry by Queen Victoria in 1887.

From the early 1870s, talented artists were engaged by Sir Henry to decorate an extensive variety of art pottery, including vases and figurines. Leading artists at the Lambeth Studio included George Tinworth, George Tabor, Frank Butler, the Barlow sisters (Hannah and Florence) and Mark Marshall.

The title Royal was bestowed to Royal Doulton by King Edward VII when he came to the throne in 1901.

The 20th century studio flourished with artists such as Leslie Harradine and Harry Simeon until its closure in 1956. By this time most artistic production had transferred to Burslem in Stoke-on-Trent.
