Royal Doulton has a rich history of artistry and craftsmanship, a legacy kept alive by the phenomenal artists who've been part of their journey. This month, we spotlight one such artisan, the master craftswoman, Margaret (Peggy) Davies. Born in Burslem, Peggy's passion for art emerged despite her early life hardships, and this tenacity and skill became the backbone of her storied career.
Peggy Davies began her remarkable journey with Royal Doulton in 1939. Despite life's trials and tribulations, her commitment to crafting exquisite figurines remained unwavering. Out of her modest workshop, she created an enchanting line of figure models for the celebrated Doulton HN series, setting a new standard for Royal Doulton's collections.
Her talent for capturing the essence of different periods through her designs is truly commendable. From her beautifully intricate 'Bernice' (HN2071, issued 1951-1953) to the historical 'Henrietta Maria' (HN2005, issued 1948-1953, part of the Period Figures in English History), Peggy's creations are a testimony to her creative vision and painstaking attention to detail.
Margaret (Peggy) Davies' contributions have etched an indelible mark on the Royal Doulton legacy. Her relentless pursuit of perfection and commitment to authenticity are still admired today, making her creations highly sought after among collectors worldwide. We are proud to honor Peggy Davies as our Designer of the Month and celebrate her enduring influence on the world of Royal Doulton.
