At Royal Crown Derby, there is a long-standing relationship with the Queen since she visited the Osmaston Road site back in 1947 as a young Princess Elizabeth.
The archival pattern of the Royal Pinxton Rose Tableware Collection on a fluted ‘Royal’ shape was designed as a 120-piece dinner service and gifted to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip during their first visit to Derby as a married couple in 1957.
Since then, Royal Crown Derby have produced commemorative collections in celebration of the Queen’s momentous occasions. Why not take a look at the latest Royal Commemorative Collections here.
