Paragon Bone China has long been a name of quality, and these two beautiful "Victoriana Rose" Coasters are a fine example. This pattern, Victoriana Rose, is a design of pink roses in varying shades, accented with greens and pale ferns that decorate the inside of the bowl in four places. There are two large sprays and two small nosegays opposite each other. The inner rim is beaded, and the outer embossed and scalloped rim is gilded with brushed gold. These coasters would also serve well as pin dishes or for a dipping sauce.
Each Bone China coaster measures 4-1/2 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch tall.
An elaborate cartouche backstamp in pink and green reads: "By Appointment To Her Majesty The Queen/ China Potters/ Paragon/ Fine Bone China/ England Regd./ Victoriana Rose" The Paragon Crest tops the mark and a pair of pink roses completes the cartouche at the bottom.
This pattern was discontinued sometime between 1981 and 1990.
The backs of the coasters have some discoloration near the rims, and there is very minor wear on the gold. Other than expected minor surface scratches, there is no other damage.
