Royal Crown Derby Remembers.

In the United Kingdom and many countries worldwide, November is a time for remembrance and commemoration of the many lives lost during the World Wars. To mark this time of reflection we look to our World War Remembrance collection in honour.

A fitting tribute to the fallen heroes during the World Wars, including the loyal working companions from the animal kingdom who supported the servicemen and also lost their lives.

The World War I Five Petal Tray and Loving Cup has decorative design showing two ears of corn and a red poppy pattern including the "Lest We Forget" message, including the dates 1914 ~ 1918. Each piece is a fitting acknowledgement to the sacrifice given by many during wartime.
