Les Saisons

The four seasons have been a constant inspiration to porcelain artists since the 18th century. Royal Doulton introduced figurines of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter in 1918, making the seasons their first ever set for the HN collection. One of the most striking sets is Les Saisons, inspired by the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha, who was the pre-eminent exponent of art nouveau in Paris at the turn of the last century.

Most of the Royal Doulton figurine artists have contributed sets of Four Seasons to the HN collection, including Peggy Davies, Pauline Parsons, Peter Gee, Nada Pedley and Valerie Annand. During the 1980s, the Royal Doulton International Collectors Club commissioned a special set for their members. Robert Jefferson’s Les Saisons was the most exclusive set being made in a limited edition of just 300 pieces from 1986-1989. Robert Jefferson was a great fan of the art nouveau style as can be seen in his first Royal Doulton figurine Harmony, with her sensuous flowing drapery. For Les Saisons, he incorporated Mucha’s distinctive art nouveau motifs into the costumes of his elegant ladies.
