Welcome to Peter Holland's Collectible Figurines Store. Here you will find a presentation of my favourite figurines. There are some of my own past and present (Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester, Coalport etc) - some of which are now retired, but if you are a collector of mine and want to build your collection, you can click on their pictures, and go to a special page of information where I tell you how you can get hold of them still by using a special type of hot search method.
Of course I talk about my latest creations too! All of them still English fine bone china hand made in Staffordshire.
Remember, I work only with the best artisans acquired from the now defunct and closed factories of Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester and Coalport - giving my work the edge of collectability.
A Quality Edge
Always look for the edge of quality over the also-rans from Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia (which is where the big brands now source their 'English' bone china). I will have nothing to do with the deceit where some companies pretend they are presenting you with English bone china when it is not from England.
I have nothing against sourcing from those countries as such - you just need to be honest about it and label your wares clearly!
I also include below on this page a link to other collectible figurines by my favourite makers - people like Lladro and Armani Florence (see the link below which says "Other Figs").
This link takes you through a fascinating mix of my favourite ranges of the world's most collected figurines in a special live online auction gallery.
Enjoy these three exciting sections all about the world of high class figurines - the ones true home makers really care about...
I am pleased to say my Queen Elizabeth figure has been well accepted. Here is one collector talking:- "She gave me shivers when, as I turned her all around, I saw the very close resemblance to the Queen, in her features, eyes, bone structure, and complexion, that distinctive tilt of her head, and her lovely hair, as she was at that young age".

I am very excited to say that I am working as a founder member of a new group called
‘The Figurine Collective’
together with one of the most popular of all collectable sculptors of all time, John Bromley.
The Figurine Collective Ltd is the very first company to use the new official historic pottery mark backstamp of Staffordshire.
This will become like a first edition of a hardback book - rare and valuable. The second company to use this logo will be - another exciting younger company from Stoke-on-Trent.
The new "Staffordshire - World Capital of Ceramics" logo promotes Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England as the center of the ceramics activity in the world.
Read about how we are bringing together the very best of English design, sculpting and superb craftsmanship, in order to produce the finest possible exclusive works of art.
You will be fascinated by the story of how an
English bone china collectable figurine is made
- ‘Our Special Touch’, the complete story – from design through to final firing (a fascinating free e-book to keep on your computer and browse as and when).
As the ultimate recognition of what we are doing, we are very pleased to report that the world famous museum in Stoke-on-Trent;
The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery – has agreed to accept our very first figurine as part of its permanent ceramics collection.
This rare accolade will no doubt, further add to the collectability of our figurines and help to make them the antiques of the future.
