Presented for sale is a magnificent companion pair of Royal Crown Derby porcelain vases decorated in a pink ground of globular form with conical necks, iron red mark for 1890. The vases are painted in raised multi colored enamels with draped floral garlands, one vase accompanied by bees and butterflies. They are further enhanced with gilt highlights.
Derby Porcelain, one of England's most famous potters, began on Nottingham Road in 1756. King George III granted Derby the prestigious right to incorporate the crown into their backstamp. In 1877, they moved to Osmaton Road, which began their modern period and the use of their present name, Royal Crown Derby. They have remained one of the world's most prestigious porcelain manufacturers. Their pieces are highly desirable for their intricate beauty and artistic workmanship.
The vases are in mint condition with little to no loss of enamel or gilt.
