Demitasse Blue and White Porcelain Cups and Saucers in the Royal Lily Pattern
This set of four blue and white porcelain demitasse cups and saucers is beautifully painted in underglaze blue in the exquisite Worcester “Royal Lily” pattern. Originally named the “Blue Lily” pattern, the name was changed 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.
Both the dishes and the cups have exquisite gilding and a line of ochre along the rim.
Dimensions: Diameter of saucer 5.35″ height of cups 2.35″ diameter of cups 2.25.”
