Discovered locally we present this rare Royal Doulton Flambe figure of Buddha c.1920. If anyone out there can identify exactly what we have here we would love to know more. It would appear to be a jade green and pink lustre Sung ware version of the Buddha designed by Charles Noke. Unusually however the base carries only the early Doulton Flambe mark. In excellent condition.
