C.1930 - c.2000
In about 1930 a new form of the ‘standard’ Doulton mark was introduced bearing the words ‘Made in England ‘ above the Royal Doulton name and, in various forms, this mark was used until recent times. The date numbers referred to above also accompany this mark and for the period from about 1930 to 1936 examples of both marks can be found.
