This Gold Aves Comport is called the "Dolphin" Dish and is appropriately decorated with raised and painted Dolphins at the corners of the bowl as well as at the squared footed base.
Beautifully hand gilded surfaces inside and out, the pedestal is bolted with bronze hardware.
Standing 5.5" high, the top of the bowl measures 10.5" across x 4.5" deep. The base itself is 5.5"
The gorgeous Gold Aves pattern is very similar to, and was obviously inspired by the Red Aves that Derby came out with earlier. This Gold version was introduced in 1961.
CONDITION: Excellent, with absolutely damage or any losses to the gilding.
We acquired this piece as part of a fabulous Estate Collection in which none of the pieces appear to have been used. Note the underside old stickers which indicate this Collector acquired the piece at auction and no doubt placed it into a china cabinet where it stayed some decades until her niece consigned it to us. All appropriate Royal Crown Derby Markings with the cypher dating to the 60s.
This piece will be professionally packaged by Encore with foam injection for insured international shipping.
