From: Nancy G.,
My Royal Doulton figurine arrived as beautiful and as perfect as promised. Thank you for the care you took of my new treasure to make sure it arrived safely. I also appreciated the professional way you handled our business transaction, as well as the personal touch you added to our correspondence regarding my purchase. I wish you great success in your business. Rest assured I will be contacting you again soon.
From: Marion C., Panama
Though I have not received my order since it is only being shipped today, I know the Royal Doulton Collie will be in excellent condition as, from constant emailing with Maureen it is obvious that she prides herself on the quality of the collectibles she sells and the service she provides to her customers. Maureen went “above and beyond the call of duty” to find what I wanted, kept in constant touch with progress reports and provided a superior level of Customer Service, which in these days is a pretty unique experience. Olde Maine and Maureen will be my first choice when I decide to add to my collection of Royal Doulton and Lladro in the future. Thanks for everything Maureen, you’re worth far more than the collectibles you sell.
Regards, Marion in Panama
I received my Royal Doulton Collie today -- a long
journey for the piece, from Maine to Miami, then via our Mail Forwarding
Service to Panama City before finally making the journey to us near the
Costa Rican Border by truck. The piece is in absolutely pristine
condition and so well packed, as I knew it would be. Having dealt with
Maureen over the internet for several months while she was trying to
obtain this piece for me, I quickly realized that she is proud of her
business, customer oriented and her number one concern is customer
satisfaction. Maureen gives superior customer service. Thank You
Maureen. It was such a great pleasure to do business with you.

I have just collected my delivery from the post office and it is excellent. This is the second piece I have purchased from you and feel blessed to have located your service. Your correspondence, pricing, and efficiency are second to none and I hope that your business is booming.
Thank you again and I will keep your details ready for next time!

My Balloon Boy arrived today - 1.45pm on April 15. He is superb - everything you had led me to believe - and absolutely in perfect condition. due, no doubt to the excellent packing methods you employed.
From: Helen B., Richardson, TX
I recently purchased Autumn Breeze HN1911(dated) by Royal Doulton, as a first time buyer from Olde Maine.
I received outstanding customer service while making my purchase. The item arrived very quickly, was exactly as described and in perfect condition. Maureen even included a handwritten thank you note on the invoice.
Maureen's personal service made it such a pleasure to do business with her and I will definitely shop Olde Maine again & again.
From: Wendy D., Australia
You should be very proud of the way you run your business. It is always good to read as a buyer, genuine customers comments, especially when someone is a new customer. I can tell you now, that I read your testimonial section prior to buying off you and knew once I read it that I could buy with confidence from you. I would also like to add, your packaging is excellent with the double protection of the figurine. Not too many sellers will ship overseas using this method of packaging. More is the pity that they don’t... Many thanks once again for your prompt reply’s to emails, your friendly service, and the Unbelievable fast postage to Australia. I still can’t believe that you posted on the Friday in the US and it reached Australia the following Thursday!! I look forward to dealing with you again.
With warm regards, Wendy.

It has been a sensational "online" experience! - Tony
Purchased Royal Doulton Past Glory
From: Pierre G., Ottawa, Ontario Canada
This is my third time dealing with Maureen and all I can say is that it has been an absolute pleasure once again. Maureen and Old Maine Antiques and Collectibles do not disappoint their customers. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Maureen makes me feel more like a friend than a customer. She answers all of my emails promptly, delivers the goods as promised, and my order arrived here in Canada in only 7 working days. It would have been here sooner but it was their American Thanksgiving. Thank you so much, Maureen and best wishes for the upcoming holiday season. Your friend, Pierre.

This is my second time dealing with Maureen from Olde Maine Antiques & Collectibles. I came back to purchase from Maureen as she provides the best service when dealing in the secondary market of Royal Doulton figurines on the net. She responded to all of my emails promptly and she delivered the figurine on time and as promised in mint condition. Maureen makes me feel more like a friend than a customer. I will not hesitate to deal with Maureen again; as well, I will recommend her to all of my friends. Thanks again, Maureen, for making this transaction so easy and painless. - Pierre

The package arrived today! I am ever so pleased with it and can't thank you enough for shipping it so quickly. I honestly didn't think it would be here before Christmas so that has been a lovely surprise. I will recommend you to all my friends and if needed, will not hesitate to use you again (the figure is a present for my mother who is a collector so it's quite likely I may be looking again next year!). Thanks again for a truly professional service.

Hello Maureen: Just wanted to let you know the two RD figurines arrived safely. They are in A-1 shape and perfect in every way. Thank you for your help and assistance. It is truly appreciated.

Purchased Royal Doulton Spring Morning and Blithe Morning
From: Pierre G., Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
This was my first time dealing with Olde Maine Antiques and Collectibles and I must say I was very impressed! Maureen made me feel more like a friend than a customer. She returned all my emails promptly and answered all of my questions and concerns. The figurines were shipped on a Friday afternoon and I received them the following Thursday afternoon in Canada. They were in mint condition just as Maureen had said. My wife will surely be surprised on Christmas morning. All I can say is I wouldn't hesitate to deal with Olde Maine again in the future. Maureen, you have the best prices and services on the Net when it comes to classic Royal Doulton figurines. Thank you so much and God Bless!

Purchased Royal Doulton New Baby (girl)
From: Barbara B., British Columbia, Canada
The Royal Doulton New Baby arrived safely this morning. I am just thrilled! When my granddaughter was born in 2001, she was given the New Baby figurine. Her little brother was born last November and we looked all over Western Canada for his New Baby, without success. Guess what his first birthday present from Grandma and Granddad is going to be?! Thanks for your great service. I will certainly be ordering more figurines from you in the future.

'Hazel' arrived today, a little jet-lagged, but otherwise in perfect condition, thanks to your first-rate packaging.
I am delighted with my purchase and my wife, I am sure, will be equally delighted when she receives it as a Christmas gift.
It has been a pleasure shopping with you and I shall have no hesitation in returning to your site, in the future, should my wife wish to expand her figurine collection. Please accept my thanks for your excellent OldeMaine service and attention; it is much appreciated.

Just came back from a trip or would have contacted you earlier...the Blacksmith is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much!! Your friendly emails, safe packaging, and lovely figurine are so very much appreciated. Thanks in triplicate!
Purchased Williamsburg - Blacksmith
From Janice H., Ottawa, Ontario CANADA
As a Canadian collector, the internet has been a wonderful source of information. To my delight the older pieces that I have seen in the Charlton Catalogues and dreamed of owning are right there at OldeMaine.com. Maureen has done the work, found these treasures, and now offers them for sale at the most reasonable prices anywhere! She is willing to take the time and do the paperwork that is necessary for shipment to Canada. This is important because most people will not do this. Maureen answers emails promptly and is always eager to share her knowledge. Even though I collect on a very small scale, I am treated as a friend and fellow collector and not just as a customer. Maureen concentrates on finding the rarer older Doultons (both figurines and Bunnykins). Because she is not a dealer selling the current line, there are no slick promotions, just GREAT values presented to collectors just like us. Thank you, Olde Maine!
Purchased several Doulton figurines and Bunnykins
From Kevin Z. Kansas City, Missouri
I am writing yet once again to say "THANK YOU." The Royal Doulton "Patricia" is beautiful and in perfect mint condition as always. I would also like to commend you again for your extraordinary service and personal attention. Being a shopper for Doultons from dealers, eBay, retailers....Olde Maine is simply the best around. From your pricing to your customer care and product, you are unbeatable. Thanks again for all. I remain (probably among many) one of your #1 Fans! In fact, I'm already selecting my next piece from you. Best regards, Kevin Z. Kansas City, Missouri
Purchased Royal Doulton Patricia
From R. M. Conrad, North Royalton, Ohio..
Hi Joe: Wanted to compliment you most sincerely on the superb Doulton figures you offer at unbeatable prices. I just purchased The Centurion, and he will be a show case piece. It has been a total pleasure dealing with you and Maureen. I very much appreciate how you went out of your way to accommodate me, how professionally everything was packed, and how wonderfully prompt you sent it out. Integrity, honesty and good communication are the keys to professionalism, and you excel on all scores....and, I may add, sadly, from my experience, all three are becoming rarer commodities in today's society and internet marketing. I am absolutely delighted, and will definitely be doing more business with you in the future. I recommend Olde Maine to anyone who is a serious collector and wants a square and reputable deal from fabulous people!!!

Martin J. Read, London, England:..I would like to
order this (Royal Doulton) figurine, not least because Dame Ellen Terry was my great,
I have attached a print of the painting that the Royal Doulton figurine of my great, great aunt was modelled on. I thought that this might be of interest to you and any future potential customers of yours. It portrays Dame Ellen Terry as Lady MacBeth and was painted in 1889 by John Singer Sargent (1847-1928) and is displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, England. Kind regards, Martin.

Maureen, WE CAN BOTH UNCROSS OUR FINGERS - BLESS YOU !! What a week! 11 o'clock
yesterday morning - a knock at the door - thankfully someone was at home and yes - your
parcel was here - I couldn't believe it as when you said about five days I honestly didn't
expect it before Saturday - what a fantastic service.
You'll be delighted to know I'm absolutely thrilled to bits - they arrived safe and sound and truly are Vintage Royal Worcester - the colours and features are fantastic compared to the later figurines and I'm over the moon.
I just feel that somehow all of this was meant to be and I'll never forget my first venture into the WWW, the friendship made - the knowledge gained ...Please keep in touch - with my very best wishes to you both. Jackie

packaging and TLC. She is truly lovely and will be the ideal gift!
Once again, I am so glad to have found your Company. It has been a real pleasure dealing with you on our first sale...you have certainly become my first choice for Royal Doulton.

Tom from Sydney, Australia: .. Was looking for some information on my old Royal Doulton plate and emailed Oldemaine. Joe researched my item and gave me invaluable information.

Kimberly from Cincinnati, Ohio: I just received the figurines and they are gorgeous. The box came in excellent shape and they were packaged very well. They came so fast too!
