Derby ware

porcelain figures and servicewares made in Derby, central England, about 1750-1848. The best-known early figures were characterized by glaze retractions about the base. Known as "dry-edge" figures, their modeling and execution were excellent, the porcelain soft and heavy; a pair known as the "Florentine Boars," after Italian bronzes, is the most noted example.
