This is a set of 6 beautiful DEMITASSE cups & 5 saucers in the Royal Crown Derby Traditional Imari pattern. The cups are just 2 high.
The bowl is 2-1/4 in diameter and is very gently scalloped octagonally around the edge. The pretty saucers are 4-1/8 in diameter, and also gracefully scalloped.
I don't believe these little cups were ever used--the gold trim is beautiful and unworn. I don't think the pictures adequately show the deep cobalt and vivid colors. I have an orphan demitasse saucer, not scalloped and a bit smaller older? If you don't mind that it doesn't quite match these other saucers, I will end that listing and include it with this one at no additional cost. They are a better description than my words and the major part of the description.
If you are interested, I will be happy to provide more photos and to answer any questions you have. I do my best to examine and describe the items accurately and to point out any defects, but if you find something I didn't, please let me know immediately. Please treat me as you would like to be treated. My mother enjoyed her collections and it is wonderful when they go to someone who will get as much pleasure from them as she did. Thank you for your interest in these lovely fine porcelain pieces--I look forward to answering any questions you have!
