The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company has earned the respect of collectors all over the world because of their quality workmanship and exquisite colors and patterns. This penguin is a good example.
This penguin is part of their 'paperweight' collection. It has a removable gold button on the bottom which could be pulled out to allow you to fill with sand to fulfill the 'paperweight' function. Most collectors leave as is and just display. The condition is excellent. It measures 5 1/4" tall and bears the deep cobalt and gold colors that only RCD produces!
The company has was originally set up in the 18th century. The present factory was established in 1878 and it earned its 'Royal' title from Queen Victoria in 1890.
