This beautiful early Derby plate is marked on the base with the puce Derby mark of a crown above crossed batons and dots, together with the pattern number '45'. This puce mark was used at the famous Derby factory between c1782-1800. It also has a decorator's mark of a puce '5' near to the foot rim.


This elegant Derby plate is in good condition with no chips, cracks, repairs or restoration. The only extremely minor imperfections are some wear to the gilding, mostly to the garter star in the centre of the pate where knife cut lines can be seen, as shown in the pictures below. There are also a few little blemishes in the glaze, mainly on the underside of the plate, but these are insignificant and just from the manufacture.
