This Bali pattern was manufactured for 17 years by the Royal Crown Derby China company, based in the UK. This is one of Crown Derby's more muted patterns, although the Chinese influence is still very noticeable. That's the design upon which Royal Crown Derby has built some of their greatest successes such as Royal Crown Derby Old Imari, Royal Crown Derby Traditional Imari, and Royal Crown Derby Derby Border. The Far East and it's culture has been a boondoggle for this company and this pattern reflects that.
Our favorite Royal Crown Derby Bali pieces are the dinner plate and the salad plate.
