I wanted to share with you today some information about Royal Crown Derby paperweights.
In 1981, they started producing paperweights. Because they only started making them 30 years ago, you will never find an antique one!! They have been producing collectible figurines, however, since 1750.
Here’s a look at some of their figurines!

|Love this donkey!!|
|I love how colorful the mandarin duck is!|
|this owl is very neat!|
And now for my two!
I have two sleeping cats.
The one on the left is the “sleeping cottage garden cat”. The one on the right is the “sleeping imari cat”.
|My sleeping cats! Aren’t they cute?|
I kind of like this tortoiseshell cat for my next one… if I can’t have the donkey, that is!
Have you seen or heard of these before? They have so many different ones to collect, I’m sure you could find at least one you like!
They can be purchased here… or on eBay!
