Royal Doulton Doctor - $250

4 1/4" wide x 4 1/2" deep x 7 1/2" high.

Here is another pristine Royal Doulton figurine entitled simply, "The Doctor". It depicts a country doctor explaining the merits of "modern" medicinal cures. The detail is exquisite showing the doctor's bag beside his chair and even his gold watch chain draped over his vest. His expression is calm and reassuring and reminiscent of days when the good doctor would visit his patients via horse and buggy in their own homes. The simplicity of those times is reflected in this kind doctor's face. The colors are soft and the detail is very well defined. This figurine bears the Royal Doulton lion and crown mark and is numbered HN 285. It is labeled Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd. 1978. It is rare to find these fine pieces in mint condition, so consider this nice collectable for your next antique purchase.
