Blue and White Set of Dinner Dishes Derby Royal Lily Pattern Made England 1882
This exceptional blue and white set of Royal Lily Pattern dinner dishes was made in England in 1877. The dozen dinner plates are beautifully painted in underglaze blue in the exquisite Worcester “Royal Lily” pattern. Begun in the 18th century it was originally named the “Blue Lily” pattern. Worcester changed the name in 1788 when King George III and Queen Charlotte of England toured the Worcester factory and ordered a breakfast service in this pattern. Worcester subsequently renamed it the ‘Royal Lily’ pattern in honor of Queen Charlotte. The dishes have exquisite gilding and a line of ochre along the rim.
