Ashbourne is inspired by blue and gold patterns from the early Derby pattern books. The full in-glaze blue border has been highly fired to produce a deep, rich color that changes with different lighting. The simplicity of the plain blue and gold patterned borders is a classic look, which will suit simple, contemporary settings as well as the more traditional. The pattern mixes easily with gold and white as well as more decorative florals. Made in England by Royal Crown Derby.
