Tiepolo has a stylish narrow border pattern which is classic, elegant and rich on its own or sophisticated and contemporary as an accent to other designs. The border design combines gloss and matt raised 22 carat gold finishes softened by a small diamond chain inner border. The pattern is named after the 18th century Venetian Italian Rococo artist Giandomenico Tiepolo.
The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company is owned by one of the world’s most respected ceramic brands, Steelite International, which has its headquarters in the English ‘Potteries’. It employs hundreds of skilled craftspeople and manufactures the highest quality English Fine Bone China at its factory on a four and a half acre site at Osmaston Road, in Derby, England. The Company produces bone china tableware, giftware and collectables. The present factory was established in 1878 but the business traces its origins to the original factory which was set up in Nottingham Road in about 1750. In 1890, Queen Victoria granted permission to include the title “Royal” in the company name.
