Royal Crown Derby introduced the Traditional Imari #2451 pattern in 1902 and this cup and saucer is dated coded to 1903. It was produced within a year of the pattern's in introduction 110 years ago. The cup is 1 3/4" tall and the mouth of the cup is 3 3/8" in diameter. The saucer is 5 1/4" in diameter. The date cypher on each is the same. The set is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or repairs. Note that there is some minor wear to the gold in the saucer well presumably from rubbing of the cup over 109 years. This does not seriously detract from the overall beauty of this antique set. It is marked on the bottom as shown. Price is for one but there are 10 sets available. Note that there are many cup and saucer styles in this pattern so please check yours for an exact match. We have R.C. Derby Imari miniatures in our shop right now and will be adding more R.C.
