Royal Crown Derby introduced the "Derby Posies" pattern in 1900 and it was made for over 100 years. A wide variety of pieces were produced including flatware with porcelain handles and either stainless or silver plated functional ends. Producing matching flatware was an interesting and innovative way of complimenting the dishware in this pattern. This is a 7" tea fork with a "Derby Posies" china handle with a stainless steel fork portion. The bottom of the fork is marked Royal Crown Derby England. Note this version of the fork has one ring where the fork joins the handle. Another version has two. Please compare yours for an exact match. The fork is in excellent condition. The china handle is not cracked, chipped, or repaired. The stainless insert is firmly inserted into the handle and is in excellent condition. The price is for one and you can buy up to the number remaining. We have over 50 pieces of this pattern that we will be adding to our shop. We are offering free shipping for this item.
