Pair Of Dr. Wall First Period Royal Lily Pattern Dessert Plates

Presenting a pair of first period late 18th century Dr. Wall Worcester porcelain dessert plates in the Royal Lily pattern. The plates feature a Chinese style sunburst pattern in underglaze blues with a cobalt rim and scalloped edge.

Dr. Wall a physician, and William Davis an apothecary, founded a factory at Warmstry House, Worcester, England, on the banks of the River Severn in 1751. They developed a unique method for producing porcelain and decorated many of their first wares in underglaze blues and then later in colored enamels. The Dr. Wall period lasted until 1783 when Thomas Flight purchased the factory. The Blue Lily pattern was renamed the Royal Lily pattern after King George III and Queen Charlotte visited the Worcester factory in 1788 and placed a large order for an entire dinner service. It has remained one of Worcesters' most endearing patterns.

The plates are in excellent condition with age related wear to the gilded edge .

Size: 7 ½" Diameter.
