My Mother-in law worked at Royal Crown Derby for many years as a hand finishing decorator. She sadly passed away early this year. She met Queen Elizabeth 2nd when she visited the factory and she loved every minute of her job. When she retired she was so proud of having worked there that she started her own very big collection of Paperweights most of which are first quality limited editions.This particular paperweight was by commisioned by Royal Doulton and was only available through their own outlets. It is complete with original box, and limited edition certificate.
