Janet, named after Johns sister, is a chic figurine wearing a contemporary styled ball gown decorated in a dramatic combination of claret red and soft grey. The dress has a strapless plunging neckline, which is delicately traced with 24 carat gold cross stitch motifs, and the elegant outline of her drop-waisted bodice is also trimmed with gold. Janets pashmina, decorated with an intricate design of flowers, scroll work and foliage, matches her underskirt, whilst her elbow length gloves coordinate with her dress. The vibrant red tones of her outfit create a dramatic contrast to her flowing brunette hair.

John Bromley, a master ceramic sculptor, was an apprentice in the Royal Doulton modeling studios in the 1960s. During his long career he modelled 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.
