While clearing out a family home a few weeks ago, I obtained a Royal Doulton dinner set – with only one piece missing – that dated back to 1918. It was once my grandmother’s. It’s a beautiful set, the china is a soft cream with an intricate yellow and black floral design etched around the edges of the pieces. Royal Doulton has been in works since 1815 and the brand has become iconic for the beautiful, feminine, timeless and classic designs of tableware and serve-ware.

However, their newest collection is the complete opposite of their past and we wonder if they’re aiming it at younger people – rather than those who can afford and appreciate their pieces.

The collection is called “Street Art” and is the complete opposite to any design they’ve ever shared before.

What we once knew as Royal Doulton looked like…



Now looks like:

So tell us, what do you think of this big change? Can you image heading out to buy some of this new collection? Is it just the brand moving with the times and staying relevant? Or should they stick to the classic, timeless designs they’re known well for…?

  1. Revolting !!!!!!! The old & older & oldest are my choice, I have mine, & pieces of mothers & grandmothers .

  2. As they have to sell maybe the older ones are not selling to the young . Young people have money and just because it is not our taste does not make it wrong each to their own it is like a lot of things we suit our own taste.

  3. Can’t say that I’m partial to flowery patterns but they are a darn sight better than those hideous new designs.
