Pair of Royal Doulton Fishing Ceramics.
A pair of Royal Doulton Series Ware 'The Gallant Fishers' Fishing bowls with wavy edges. The bowls are with polychrome fishing scenes, one of a fisherman lying on the river bank reading a book the other with a fisherman sat on a stool. Both have the inscription around the edge:- 'And When The Timrous Trout I Wait To Take And He Devours My Bait'. The bottom has the pattern number D3680 and has the special "The Gallant Fishers" back stamp. The stamp looks like an old English shop sign in the shape of a fish, bearing the words Royal Doulton "The Gallant Fishers" made in England. Both bowls have had slight repairs to the rims.

The Gallant Fishers series was introduced in around 1913 and was withdrawn by 1936.

It is thought that Royal Doulton Series Ware was the brainchild of Charles John Noke, and 'The Gallant Fishers' series was inspired by the works of Isaac Walton. The humorous characters are very reminiscent of Charles Crombie works.
