Royal Doulton 100 Years of HN Figures, Columbine HN 5654
The Prestige figurine Columbine and its pair Harlequin were both modelled by Douglas Tootle and launched in 1982. Doug's contribution to the figurine collection was varied and included models for the Images and Reflections collections, a series of pretty ladies wearing costumes inspired by the extravagant flounces and frills of the Victorian era and striking Prestige subjects. Columbine, a crafty serving girl, is one of the characters in the comic cast of the Italian Commedia Dell-Arte. Her portrayal continues one of Royal Doulton's most important traditions, established during the 1890s, of inspiration from the stage. The commemorative miniature recreates the flamboyant rococo style of the original study, whilst the beautiful colours and the exquisitely executed floral details on her skirt and blouse are a tribute to the hand painting skills of Royal Doulton's ceramic artists.
