The pattern is Old Imari 1128, introduced in 1901 and still one of the most popular patterns. It features a bold floral and geometric design decorated in cobalt blue, rich iron red and heavy 22 karat gold. All of the pieces are in excellent condition and appear unused.
I looked for any imperfections, but everything looks as though it was gently stored. Each place setting has one dinner plate (10 1/2" with a 1 3/4" border), one salad plate (8 1/2"), one bread or dessert plate (6 1/4"), one flat cup (2 5/8") and one saucer (5 3/4").All of the pieces of china bear the red Royal Crown Derby, English Bone China. Most have the XL11 mark, designating production year of 1979, but there are a few exceptions: 1977, 1979, and 1980's. A beautiful SET of china in an age old pattern. Please check my other listings for rim soup bowls in the Royal Crown Derby Ambassador pattern, which compliments this pattern with the same color scheme in a classic design.
