Nouveau Breakfast Basket

£65.00

The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company is one of the oldest remaining English porcelain manufacturers. Known for its high-quality bone china, it has produced tableware and ornamental items since 1750. Crown Derby’s patterns became immensely popular during the late Victorian period, as their romantic and lavish designs met the popular taste of the period.

This art nouveau breakfast set, although not as ornate as some Derby patterns, is beautifully hand painted with bands of cornflowers on pure white china and gilded on handles and rim. 

Each piece is marked with the Pattern # 7392 and factory mark dating the set to the years 1891 – 1921.

Victorian breakfast basket for muffins : 3.5 cm deep x 24 cm handle to handle

Beautiful condition, no cracks, crazing or chips to the china with very little if any wear to the gilding.

Description

The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain company was known as Derby Porcelain until 1775, when King George III granted the factory the honour of being able to incorporate a crown into its backstamp – becoming Crown Derby. In 1890, Queen Victoria awarded Crown Derby the royal warrant and the company was renamed Royal Crown Derby.
