Leslie Harrdine - Dickens

The centenary of Charles Dickens birth in 1912 inspired Royal Doulton’s Lambeth studio to issue a set of figures featuring some of his leading characters. Six salt-glaze stoneware figures were modeled by Leslie Harradine and were produced in buff, brown or colored decoration. In addition to the figure models, Harradine modeled an imposing stoneware bust of Charles Dickens himself, which, like the figures, was made in very limited numbers. These Dickens characters were among Harradine’s last works for the Lambeth studio before he emigrated to Canada.

In 1919, Leslie Harradine returned to England and Noke employed him on a free-lance basis. One of his first commissions was a set of miniature Dickens figures, which proved to be a huge success, remaining in production for over 60 years. Harradine then turned his attention to larger figures which he modeled originally in salt-glaze stoneware. These unique prototypes were in the Doulton archives for many years. Six Dickens characters joined the HN collection in 1923 and continued in production until 1939 (HN553-8). Several of the early Dickens figures are supported by a bush which helped prevent the legs from kiln collapse during firing.
