Pots of money in East Anglia

09 April 2005Written by Roland Arkell

For obvious reasons the Royal Doulton 'Norfolk' pattern is avidly collected in East Anglia.

After acquiring the dinner plates and the soup bowls, it is rare forms everyone wants and Suffolk auctioneers Diamond Mills (10% buyer's premium) of Felixstowe could offer two chamber pots on March 23.

The example in the commonly seen blue and white pattern soared away to sell for £540 while the following lot, a slightly rarer jerry printed with the same design in red sold to the same buyer at £640. Apparently, the less successful red-printed Norfolk was only produced in Burslem for a short period of perhaps six months.
