A collection of Royal Crown Derby valued at thousands of pounds is going under the Charterhouse hammer in their auction of Antiques & Interiors on Friday 2nd August.

“Although the collection is made up of modern Royal Crown Derby, there is still a strong market for collectors looking to add to their collections and this is a great opportunity for them.” Commented Richard Bromell.

Royal Crown Derby is one of the oldest porcelain manufacturers in this country. It started in 1750 when Andrew Planche established the first china works in Derby. In 1775 King George III granted Derby the honour of incorporating the crown into their backstamp. Today Royal Crown Derby is known across the world for their fine bone china.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of specialist auctions including jewellery, silver and watches in August, followed by coins, medals, stamps, model cars, trains and other toys also in August, and for their next specialist classic car and classic motorcycle auctions.

Richard Bromell and the Charterhouse Team can be contacted for specialist advice and valuations at The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, 01935 812277 or via
