Launching the new Collector’s Guild paperweights for 2017

Introducing Flora Kitten and Dora Mouse, exclusively available to the Royal Crown Derby Collector’s Guild members for 2017. Complimentary gift, Dora Mouse, suitably complements Guild Exclusive and new shape, Flora Kitten to make the distinctly perfect playful pair to add to your Guild collection.

Inspired by the sweet play between the mouse and kitten, the design characterises free-flowing meadow flowers gently floating up and over the bodies of the mouse and kitten as they play.  The design is painted as if at plant level, looking across, below and above the flower heads encompassing daisies, forget-me-knots, campion, mallow and lungwort, as they are moved by the mouse and kittens’ interaction.  With a traditional theme to the line and tone artwork, and a twist of a brighter, modern, pastel candy-colour palette, the detail of the mouse and kitten with highly decorative eyes, and their noses and mouths painted with maximum sweetness in mind, they are in keeping with Fifi Cat and Millie Kitten for those Collectors of the Royal Crown Derby Cat range.

Flora Kitten: Modelled by Hilary Walker.  Dora Mouse: Modelled by John Ablitt.  Both pieces designed by Carmen Roome.
