Description
Set of six highly decorated porcelain cups and six saucers made by Derby Crown Porcelain Co, England. The mark on the base of the set was used by the company when it was in Osmaston Road, from its establishment in 1877 to Dec., 1889. The year cypher below the interlocking "Ds" dates the set at 1886. Cups and saucers are characteristic of the 'imari' design using blue, red/orange and gold glaze. The teacups all have gold handles.

Their original source from the hospital is unknown although a note with the set indicates it came from the board room cabinet.
