One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Fine, decorative pottery or porcelain made at the British factories of John Doulton (1793–1873) or his successors.

- ‘Carrying a similar estimate is a not very cuddly but highly collectable Steiff teddy bear on wheels, a sort of rocking-teddy, while the least cuddly of all is a monumental pottery bear by Doulton.’
- ‘The stake in Doulton was bought to prevent any company getting it first, but if Alchemy talks are at an advanced stage, Waterford will be under pressure to make a decision.’
- ‘Pieces made by the more in-demand manufacturers such as Doulton will always attract premium prices, and so too will very unusual items.’
