Additional Info: The Derby Porcelain company was founded in the mid 1750's at the Chelsea works factory in Derby. In 1775 the company was given permission to add the word Crown by King George III in recognition of their outstanding craftsmanship. With the appointment of a Royal Warrant in 1890 by Queen Victoria, the company became known as Royal Crown Derby. Royal Crown Derby is one of the United Kingdoms most iconic brands and is still manufactured exclusively in the UK.. Named after the Japanese port of Imari. Imported Japanese (and Chinese Chrysanthemum) pottery was extremely popular at the time not only for their decorative patterns but also their delicate and desirable quality. Many English pottery firms such as Wedgwood and Royal Crown Derby would replicate these fabulous intricate patterns hence the terms Japanned or Chinoiserie. The Oriental style was not only replicated on china but also extended to furniture.. Please view the photos carefully as they form part of the description.
