Dorothy May, named after Johns mother, is a stunning figurine wearing a traditionally styled ball gown decorated in soft shades of mauve. The overskirt with a multitude of flounces and folds cascades over a long flowing skirt which is decorated with a trailing design of delicate flowers. Her blonde hair is tied back with a pale purple bow with gold accents.

John Bromley, a master ceramic sculptor, was an apprentice in the Royal Doulton modeling studios in the 1960s. During his long career he modeled countless beautiful figurines that are now cherished by collectors around the world. In 2013 John died. During his illness he received treatment and support at the world leading cancer hospital The Christie, in Manchester.

The Celebrating John Bromley Collection features four of Johns figurines redesigned in a new color way and named after a member of his close family. For every figurine sold, 5% of the net sales value will be donated to The Christie charity to support vital research into pancreatic cancer.

As evidenced by the name, Royal Doulton enjoys the distinction of a "Royal Warrant" -- a mark of distinction bestowed upon people or companies who have regularly supplied members of the Royal Family with goods or services. Royal Warrants, regarded as a mark of supreme excellence and quality, cannot be bought or sold.

King Edward awarded the first Royal Warrant to Royal Doulton in 1901. The Doulton Company then became The Royal Doulton Company. Presently, the Royal Doulton brand holds two Royal Warrants, the Royal Albert brand holds two Royal Warrants and the Minton brand holds one.
