True to its heritage, craftsmanship and quality remain paramount. Royal Doulton's largest and most expensive figure takes no less than 160 hours to hand paint and costs more than £14,000. Its collectables have proved so popular that it launched the Royal Doulton International Collectors Club (RDICC) in 1980. Royal Doulton Archives give the business and its designers access to some 10,000 watercolours dating right back to 1815. And the Doulton Lambeth pedigree lives on with modern limited edition Lambethwares.
