Four Derby Porcelain Dishes Hand Painted in Sprig Pattern, England, circa 1815


The “Sprig” pattern was the favorite porcelain pattern of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France; It was the height of style in Paris and London in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This set is Derby’s version of the “Sprig” pattern. Made in England, circa 1815, the four dishes have vibrant enameled sprigs of blue cornflowers with red accents and lush green and bright yellow leaves. In the center of each plate are loose sprigs of flowers, and the border is filled with a beautiful wreath of cornflowers. The pattern is lively and elegant.

The underside of each dish is marked in iron-red with the Derby crown. This iron-red mark was used by the Derby Factory from 1800-1825.
