Royal Doulton Old Balloon Seller #h.n.1315
|| for item RD269I
Offering this Royal Doulton, The Old Balloon Seller #HN1315. Designed by Lesley Harradine, introduced in 1929 & discontinued 1998 the Old Balloon Seller I believe was the first of the street sellers and probably the best known. Because of the success of this one many more followed but its popularity has outlived all its rivals, turning it into a symbol of the whole Doulton street seller figures series. This piece measures 8" tall and is in near perfect condition. I have checked it over very carefully on can only see 3 craze lines on the white apron way down near the bottom on the balloon side near where the green section starts. I tried to get a photo but it would not show that is how faint it is. Very unusual to find these Royal Doultons in that great a shape as they most likely will have some small flaw or missed painted area. I estimate this piece to have been produced in the 1960's. Shipping is free anywhere in the U.S.A. only and that will include insurance and delivery confirmation with Priority Mail.
