Dr Derek Thomas has relaunched his website focusing on the early Derby tea patterns, a reconstruction of the old Derby tea pattern book in photographic form.
The website concentrates on the early Nottingham Road tea pattern book dating from c1783 - c1805, from the very end of the Chelsea Derby period through the puce mark period, patterns 1 - 770.
Whilst Dr Thomas has found examples of a large number of the patterns, there are still very many gaps.  He invites Society members and friends to help him to fill as many of these gaps as possible and we urge individuals, dealers, action houses and museums to pass on to him any images of missing patterns that you may find.  An acknowledgement will always be given on his site if an image is used unless the contributor requests anonymity.
Dr Thomas gives both his time and work freely to us all, we hope you'll be able to respond and help with his research.


The images on this page are from the Chelsea Derby period c1771 - c1784.
