Superb Crown Derby strawberry server set in the imari based King's pattern, comprising fabulous lobed basket with carry handle, creamer, sugar bowl, cream ladle and sifter spoon. The basket is earthenware with a fluted bowl, 2 side pockets for the jug and bowl and sweeping split handles. Relief moulded acanthus leaf terminals, scrolls and with a gadrooned edge all round, the decoration of enamels and gilding is absolutely beautiful.
The squat form creamer and bowl are porcelain with fluted bodies and scalloped rims. The 2 earthenware spoons also match beautifully in form and decoration. A truly stunning set.
The basket measures 10 1/2" long, 11" wide and 6" high. The creamer and sugar bowl are 2 3/8" high and 2 3/4" wide (the jug 3 3/4" spout to handle). The cream ladle is 7 1/8" long and the sifter 4" long.
Condition is excellent; with no damage and minimal surface wear to any piece, clearly little used if at all.
