Blue and White Porcelain Dinner Service Antique Royal Crown Derby
An elaborate Royal Crown Derby porcelain dinner service in the “Lily” pattern painted in bright cobalt blue. This beautiful blue and white pattern covers the entire plate with intense color. The decoration is an explosion of color radiating outwards. At the center of each plate is one larger flower encircled in gold.
