MICHAEL DOULTON TO SHOW EXCLUSIVE ROYAL
DOULTON FIGURES AT BELZ FACTORY OUTLET WORLD - LAS VEGAS ONE-DAY EVENT
LAS VEGAS -- Michael Doulton, international spokesperson
for Royal Doulton, will be appearing at Belz Factory Outlet World - Las
Vegas on Sunday, November 26 from noon to 4 p.m. to meet collectors, and

first time, Michael Doultons figures will be serial numbered.
As a fifth-generation descendant of the founder of Royal Doulton, Michael
Doulton is in great demand throughout the world. His extensive knowledge
of the companys products enables him to enlighten collectors about
the new and discontinued pieces.
"Susan" is the 2000 Michael Doulton figure of the year. At eight
inches tall, Susan features a richly-colored traditional century costume
with a flower-adorned hat. The figure was developed, with Michaels
close involvement, by modeler John Bromley.
Royal Doulton's Bunnykins collection is showcasing its first tour-exclusive
figure. The "Morris Dancer," modeled by Shane Ridge, was inspired
by English folklore and a dance popular since the 15th century.
The colorful "Garden Snail" paperweight is the third figure
offered as a part of the Michael Doulton tour. At a height of only 2.6
inches, Garden Snail is produced in a limited edition of 4,500. Modeled
