Set of 6 x 18thC First Period Worcester Royal Lily Pattern Fluted 9 3/4 Plates. A lovely and rare set of 18th century Dr. Wall period Worcester Lily pattern plates, circa 1788, with rare large crescent C mark in blue, made around the same time as a set for George III and Queen Charlotte: painted in blue with the'Royal Lily' pattern with added gold borders and a ochre red line fluted rim, 22cm - 24cm diameter approx, crescent mark in blue. On the underside rim there is an unusual added floral pattern around the rim.When George III and Charlotte visited Worcester in 1788, they ordered a set of the Lily pattern, and thereafter the factory named it Royal Lily in their honour. For more information see an article by Richard Burt, The Melting Pot no. 11, Autumn 2007, pp 6-9. The condition of these plates is extremely good given their age with only wear to the ochre rim having no chips to the porcelain only the paint. There are no signs of crazing and the surface glaze is almost perfect.
3 are marked with the blue crescent mark and 3 are not. Hoping they go to a good Worcester porcelain antique collector as rare set of six. They are extremely rare and would grace any Worcester collection. They would look beautiful as a set of dresser display plates but also careful special occasion plates as they will get rarer as time goes on so displaying them under glass wouldn't be over reacting. Lovely to get out and hold these antique crafted plates.The item "First Period Worcester Royal Lily Pattern Dr Wall 6 x 18th Fluted 9 3/4 Plates" is in sale since Sunday, January 5, 2020.
