Antique Royal Crown Derby plate in the Imari "Kings" or "Old Japan" pattern with fluted roped rim. The plate is 22cm in diameter. Impressed stamp "Derby" and printed mark for Royal Crown Derby with year cypher for 1887.
Popularity of the Japan or Imari patterns during the mid 19th century together with Crown Derby's growing reputation helped the business expand resulting in the company opening a new factory at its current site in Ormaston in 1877, when the printed "double D" mark as seen on this plate came into use. This mark was used between c1877 and 1890. From c1880 a year cypher commonly appeared below the mark - this plate showing the cypher for 1887. The pattern number 383 refers to the "Old Japan" pattern also known as the "Kings" pattern. For more information on Royal Crown Derby visit our Maker's History pages.
