I am so proud to offer this extremely rare and important Pair of Royal Worcester Porcelain Trough Centerpieces, with the Diamond
Mark dating it to 11th August, 1869. The long bases are decorated with applied scallop shells on all sides, with a large central shell at front. One piece also features a lizard on the base. The male piece features a man stroking a puppy on his lap. The female example shows the lady gesturing to the lizard below. Both pieces have Diamond registration marks. One piece has an impressed Royal Worcester mark. Both are marked Phillips and Pearce Bond Street for the establishment where they were sold. This design record is recorded in the English National Archives. I understand there were a number of white pairs released.
