 A WORD ON PRICING ROYAL DOULTON  FIGURINES                            
Its hard to put a value on Royal Doulton figurines many people use the Charlton price guide                
which is not a very good guide to Ebay  prices. The guide is taken from shop prices in the USA  & Canadae Charlton press also uses Pascoe And Company for there price also  auction house prices  but factors them by 2.

So where can you find more information on what price they sell on ebay .
 If you do an Advanced search tick the box Completed listings that will give you all the sold prices for the last 3 months,. Which may give you some clue as to what your Royal Doulton is worth.     
2nd quality are not worth collecting they were sold in the Royal Doulton Shop at 75% discount to staff and visitors and should be used for display only not as an investment. the ones I have  seen   have lots of faults on them  mainly paint not applied correctly.           
What effects the price is presentation if you have a good photo of the back stamp plus front, rear, and head, you will increase your value.                               
Also is it in mint condition if so say so ------- "is in excellent condition with no chips,cracks,crazing marks or restoration"
Buyers generally dislike Reserve Price listings just put the lowest starting price you would except.
