Royal Crown Derby by Desire Leroy

About

A fine and rare Royal crown derby vase, the tapering oval body hand-painted with reserves framed in raised and tooled gold, painted with flowers, signed 'Leroy', the remaining reserves painted with flowers, the fluted borders in blue, turquoise and gold, the blue ground lid with two small gilt framed reserves depicting flowers, marked to base. Desire Leroy is regarded as the most distinguished artist to have ever worked at the Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company. He was born in France in 1840 and at the age of 11 was apprenticed to Sevres, the French National Works. He soon rose to prominence as one of the leading artists. In 1874 he migrated to England to be employed at Minton. Minton exhibited several of his works at the 1878 Exposition Universally, Paris. In 1890 Leroy was retained as the Art director and designer at the Royal Crown Derby Porcelain works, which gained the Royal warrant in that year.
