from the period 1877 - 1890 (Pre-"Royal" era)
Derby Lily pattern
Th is delightful dessert-size plate - 23cm or 9 inch diameter - is in lovely condition; an asset to any collection! The sharp cobalt blue and white looks superb in a cabinet, but if you are lucky enough to have and use other "Derby Lily" items, it is also fit for use.
There are no chips, cracks or repairs. In picture 5 you will see a mark on the inner rim of the reverse. This is simply a small patch of discolouration, not damage. Picture 6 shows the 1877 - 1890 Crown Derby mark. The word "Lily" is incomplete. There is also an impressed "DERBY" mark, which has not shown up in the photo. There is no sign that this plate ever had any gilding, (or if it had it has completely gon without a trace!) They seem to have come both 'with' and 'without' gold bands.
Diameter 23cm/9 inches (approx)
Height 2.5cm/1 inch
Will be packed very carefully for posting!
