Royal Crown Derby Lombardy

All About Royal Crown Derby Lombardy

Brand:  Royal Crown Derby     Pattern:  Lombardy

Manufacturer Status:  Discontinued     In Production:  1956 - 2008

Description:  Scalloped porcelain with gilt edging, aqua dots, and gold scrolls.  Made in England.

Theme:  Elegant     Dishwashing Method:  Hand wash     Secondary Market Value:  Very Good     Best Uses:  Formal

Definitely a classic with more than half a century in production, you cannot get more elegant than this!  The collection is best used for formal dining and very special occasions.  Its gold accents make it unsafe for use in the dish washer or microwave oven.   

The original Royal Crown Derby factory was set up in Nottingham Road in 1750.  (Nope, not the Notting Hill popularized by Hugh Grant).  Because of its growth and diversification, a new and more impressive factory was established in 1877 at Osmaston Road.  In 1890, Queen Victoria granted the company permission to include "Royal" as a prefix to its company name.  Truly a milestone year for the company, 1890 was also the year that the company was appointed “Manufacturers of Porcelain to Her Majesty.”  In the year 2000, its Chief Executive Officer Hugh Gibson led the company to further growth.  Upon his retirement, the company was acquired in 2013 by Steelite International, one of the world’s most successful ceramic brands.   

We definitely love the scalloped dinner plate (in fact, all the plates and saucers that come with the collection).  We are just so in love with the scalloped design!
