Description
We have for sale a very rare dessert dish made by Derby as part of a dinner service commissioned and designed by Lady Philadelphia Hannah Cremorne, Granddaughter of William Penn the founder of Pennsylvania, USA. The dessert dish is of a very simple yet elegant design, having an almost leaf shaped lozenge form with simple Chantilly blue and white sprigs along with the Viscount Lord Dartrey Cremorne Coronet over PHC within a laurel wreath. Only two of these dishes were ever made, making this particular example extremely rare. The simple design of the dish very much reflects the Quaker origins of the Cremorne family. The base of the dessert dish carries the Duesbury mark in puce. The service was commissioned at about the time that Lady Philadelphia Cremorne became lady-in-waiting to Queen Charlotte. This Derby Dessert dish was exhibited as part of the selling exhibition of rare Derby, Pinxton, Nantgarw and Swansea porcelain 'A journey with William Billingsley' 2016, ISBN: 9783741809903. This dish is also illustrated in 'Derby Porcelain: The Golden Years, 1780 – 1830' by Howell G M Edwards, edited by Morgan Denyer, due to be published in February 2018, a copy of which will be included in the sale of this dish.
