Royal Crown Derby Porcelain & China
Launched in 1750, Royal Crown Derby is one of the longest standing manufacturers of fine bone china still producing new ranges in the UK today, and they are world renowned for their quality craftsmanship in tableware and giftware. Their focus is on new and innovative design and shape combined with British spirit. So, if you are looking for something different, this is the collection for you.
Shop by Date
To make it easier to find what you are looking for, you can narrow your search by product type or by date. The date ranges start with pre-1840 Porcelain & China, moving on to the broad period between 1840 and 1900 and then on through Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the increasingly modern period until you arrive at present designs. Collectors may concentrate their search on older pieces that have already accrued significant value, but there is little doubt that the Royal Crown Derby pieces being produced today will become the collectible items of the future.
Royal Crown Derby Tableware
The design is paramount at Royal Crown Derby and the ranges available have something to suit every taste. For those preferring something relatively plain, the Tiepolo, Ashbourne or Carlton designs might be a good choice. Arboretum and Derbyshire Garden offer something for those seeking delicate and elegant florals, whilst if you are looking for something bold and courageous you might prefer Old Imari, Mikado or Satori, which offer striking colours and designs, perhaps inspired by exotic locations.
Royal Crown Derby Animals and Figurines
Birds, cats, dogs and British wildlife make up the mainstay of Royal Crown Derby's animal collection, although that being said, you can also find some delightful porcelain teddy bears. In the main, these animals are not created to look realistic, but luxurious and extravagant, with bright colours and bold designs. You won't find figurines on Royal Crown Derby's modern listings because they are no longer made, making items such as the Four Seasons and Elemental figures attractive items for collectors.
