Royal Worcester Dinner Plates, (2) "Royal Lily", Antique 19th C
Two lovely large 10-1/4" dinner plates in one of the most classic Worcester patterns: "Royal Lily". Although the pattern was first used by Worcester in the late 18th century, Royal Worcester made these plates between 1876 and 1890. The outer edge is dark red.
The pair is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs. The plates rings when tapped. There is wear to the gilding. In fact, the gilding around the center border is virtually gone, but looks fine that way.
The back-stamp is very blurred, so the actual date mark is illegible. There is also an impressed backstamp with the Royal Worcester mark and the word "vitreous". Royal Worcester Vitreous was a special high-fired earthenware which was used on many "bespoke" services where extra durability was required. The pattern number 9624 is handwritten in red.
