DERBY OLD JAPAN IMARI OR KINGS PATTERN PORCELAIN CREAMER JUG C.1830-34
"Superior English porcelain Bloor Derby Japan pattern creamer jug with flamboyant double scroll handle and Derby Gothic Crown mark circa 1830-34. More recently the Derby Old Japan Imari pattern has also been referred to as the Kings pattern by enthusiastic collectors worldwide who often collect on the basis of shape or to build a harlequin Derby Japan service for display. The precise Kings royal association remains shrouded in mystery..." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
