Here is a gorgeous hand-painted Royal Crown Derby cabinet plate to add to your collection. A lovely cobalt ground is embellished with gilt around the edges. The center cartouche is decorated with a beautiful floral design which is repeated in smaller variation around the borders. The floral theme is again found in miniature gold florals resting on the blue ground. The Royal Crown Derby mark shown was used from 1890 and the cypher mark indicates a manufacture date of 1898 (Kovel's New Dictionary of Marks, p.246). The plate measures just under 9" in diameter.
Condition is very good. There is some loss to the gilt on the surface and a bit of loss along the edges as well as some surface scratches. There are no chips, cracks or crazing. Overall, it is a beautiful piece of art.
