Circa 1786 DERBY Porcelain With Early Puce Mark Pattern #65 Platter / Tray. Background : The Derby pattern #65 is famous because it was decorated in 1786 by William Billingsley for the Prince of Wales (later King George IV).
Pattern #65 features a single pink rose and a group of small forget-me-nots with either a dawn pink border (Prince of Wales set) or a darker salmon pink border (regular pattern #65). This tray for sale here has a very light pink colored border, not sure if it is the dawn or salmon pink variety. We photographed the tray with a colored photo scale for your reference. Size : 9.5 long x 7.25 wide x 1-3/8 tall at rim. Condition : On the inside footring is gold gilders mark #8 for William Longden.
The plate has rubbing to the gold gilding & pink ground and utensil marks and a couple of small glaze pops (small round holes in glaze), small black inclusions in the porcelain body, and other typical use-wear for an antique item of this age. No chips or cracks or repairs. Our color photographic scale has primary Red/Green/Yellow colors to help you better determine the true color of this object.
