Royal Crown Derby Gilded and Floral Tea Set for Six
This stunning vintage English bone china tea set by Royal Crown Derby in pattern A1022 features ornate gilding with hand painted roses and flowers on the Elizabeth shape. It carries the pink Royal Crown Derby mark only used during WWII and immediately after. Most likely dating to 1943-52. There was a ban, during wartime, on selling these highly decorated wares within the UK, so this was likely made to be exported to the USA and Canada or to be sold to returning servicemen. A fine example of beautiful English craftsmanship.
