This stunning Royal Crown Derby 13 " covered serving dish in the beautiful 'Royal Pinxton Roses' pattern is a truly magnificent piece. It is just part of a truly impressive, large full set in this pattern. Bouquets of soft pink roses are complemented by raised 22 carat gold dots, gold leaves and intricate details including heavily gilded side and top handles which are beautifully molded. This all contributes to the presence this piece commands and the utter elegance that this pattern is all about.

A design 'fit for a Queen' ~ This pattern was launched in 1957 after being designed specifically by Royal Crown Derby for the Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip to use as a private dinner service and was gifted to the Royal couple in that same year when they visited Derby.

Crown Derby has had an illustrious history of Royal patronage and occupies, to this day, a unique place in the history of fine English china. The supreme refinement, beauty and aura of the Pinxton Roses pattern is a prime example of why this is the case.

Condition is as good as new with no cracks, chips or utensil marks whatsoever ~ in fact it looks as if it has hardly been used and has certainly never seen a dishwasher. No loss or fading to the rich, brilliant gilding. The back stamp date is for 1975, '1st quality' with no scratches to the stamp. Although this pattern was discontinued in 1997, it was reintroduced to the Royal Crown Derby range in 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and to underline that important royal connection with this beautiful pattern. Please note when assessing value that this piece is now made to order only and retails for around $988 and that this is pattern No. A1155 with the raised gold dots around the edge, which is far more ornate and exquisitely decorated than a similar RDC pattern No. A1120.

MANY OTHER PIECES IN THIS PATTERN ARE AVAILABLE. In addition to this superb serving dish with such generously beautiful gold accents, other various pieces of this china pattern come together to form a service that is truly outstanding. I am delighted to be able to offer many of these pieces which include 12 dinner plates, 8 salad/dessert plates, 8 side/butter plates, 8 cream soup cups and saucers, a substantial 14" oblong platter and a gravy boat and its ruffled edge under plate. The total retail cost of the set would be over $9000.

Please do have a look for these other items in the shop when considering how they will all contribute to a thoroughly exquisite and most impressive table setting which will be highly admired by your guests.

SHOULD A BUYER BE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS SERVING DISH TOGETHER WITH THE REST OF THIS FULL SET (DINNER, DESSERT AND BUTTER PLATES, SOUP CUPS AND SAUCERS AND TWO OTHER SERVING PIECES) A FURTHER DISCOUNT OF 10% WILL BE OFFERED ON THE WHOLE SET. What a fabulous wedding present for under $5000!

This will be professionally packed and double boxed for tracked insured shipping with the possibility of combining some of the other pieces to save
on shipping costs keeping in mind restrictions on volume.
