With so many years of history under its belt, Royal Doulton certainly has a large following and perhaps an even larger selection of patterns to choose from. While some enjoy a more bold and loud look for their table settings, others are hoping for something with a more subtle beauty. For example, the Anthea pattern may appear to be plain white at first, but upon closer inspection, you will find a beautiful floral leaf pattern around the edge. Coupled with the platinum trim and verge, this is a perfect simple and sweet pattern to enhance any table. A similar pattern would be the Precious Platinum, also with a platinum trim but this time featuring gorgeous curved lines and dots making for a gentle and graceful look.
If those are too subtle and you want something with just a little bit more going on, then Royal Gold might catch a bit more attention. It’s another piece that is very simple in design, but the beauty shines through in the smaller details. In this case, it is the textured gold rim that catches the eye. With its neutral colors, matching Royal Gold with other china, crystal, and flatware sets is easy. Of course if you’re looking for something that is a similar style to this but not as neutral, take a look at Martinique, which features a beautiful deep red geometric design around the rim.
