Royal Crown Derby

Queen Victoria appointed Crown Derby as “Manufacturers of Porcelain to Her Majesty” by order of a Royal Warrant in 1890, and the company became known as Royal Crown Derby. The company, particularly known for its high-quality bone china, has produced tableware and ornamental items since approximately 1750.
Numerous marks have been used on Derby porcelain. The earliest, an incised ‘Derby’ in flowing script, is very rare. From 1782 the painted mark usually included a crown, often with crossed swords in loose imitation of the Meissen mark. The name Bloor implies a date between 1820 and 1848.
