A superb Derby porcelain coffee can displaying a scene of two people on a hillside looking at a town in the distance. The scene is identified in blue script on the bottom as "Near Breadsall", Derbyshire" along with the pattern number 531 and the Derby crossed batons and crown mark. In addition to being a fine example of Derby painting, the ground color on this piece is a beautiful true yellow, one of the most difficult colors to produce and fire without issues, and thus one of the least common colors to find on porcelain of this period.

The can is 2 3/8" tall, with a diameter of 2 1/2". The condition is factory fresh, with no chips, cracks, paint loss, or restoration. The gilding on the cup, both in the interior drape and pendent border, and throughout the exterior of the can, is of the high quality that Derby was known for and is without any losses, even on the rim and handle. Truly as fine an example as can be found.
