About 1770, the Duke of Gloucester, William Henry, commissioned a dinner service that reflected his passionate interest in the natural world. The resulting pattern is an impressive manifestation of rococo style, complete with 19 exuberant colors, 22 karat gold gilt feathering, and a brilliant turquoise rim.
The rococo design of the pattern comes to life on the opulent Duke of Gloucester Pitcher. Gold trim accents the rim and complex handle. A beautiful addition to your table and a lovely accent to anywhere in your home.
