A stunning set of eight Royal Crown Derby double handled cream soup cups and saucers in the beautiful 'Royal Pinxton Roses' pattern. These are just part of a truly impressive, large full service. The deeply ruffled/fluted border on the saucer is unique and highly impressive. Bouquets of soft pink roses are complemented by raised 22 carat gold dots, gold leaves and trim which all contribute to the presence it 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 of these double handle soup cups and saucers is as good as new with no cracks, chips or utensil marks whatsoever ~ in fact they look as if they have hardly been used. No loss or fading to the rich, brilliant gilding. The backstamp dates are in the mid 1970's and they are all '1st quality' with no scratches across the stamps. 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 these plates retail for around $325 per set of cup and saucer and that this is pattern No. A1155 with the ruffled edge, which is far more ornate and exquisitely decorated than a similar RDC pattern No. A1120.
MANY MORE PIECES IN THIS PATTERN ARE AVAILABLE. The 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 in addition to these wonderful soup cups which include 12 dinner plates, 8 salad/dessert plates, 8 side/butter plates, a magnificent 13 " covered serving dish with generously beautiful gold accents, a substantial 14" oblong platter and a gravy boat and its ruffled edge under plate. 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.
