We are pleased to offer this set of antique Flight Barr Barr Worcester dessert dishes.
The dishes are marked with an impressed crown over “FBB,” showing that Flight Barr Barr was a purveyor to their Royal Majesties, the King and Queen of England. Made in England circa 1820, they are decorated in Worcester’s “Strawberry” pattern.
The dishes are painted in rich gold with strawberries on the palest peach ground. The color is subtle, the pattern is elegant. The combination is superb. In the Regency period, the “Strawberry” pattern was the height of fashion for the table.
In this pattern, we also have:
- A pair of square serving dishes, $300
- Two pairs of oval serving dishes, $300 per pair
- A pair of saucer dishes, $160
- An oval-shaped footed fruit bowl, $300
Please get in touch with us for more information; we will happily send images upon request.
$1,200 for the dozen dishes

Worcester produced a magnificent alternative, whiter with brighter colors and more readily available, becoming the height of fashion in the early 19th century. The customer accounts of this period would read like a ‘who’whoo’ of the day. Rich, personalized services were made for the wealthiest customers, including Tzar Alexander I, The Duke of York, King George III, King William IV, The Duke of Clarence, The Imam of Muscat, The Marquis of Buckingham, and the Nabob of Oude.”
