Royal Crown Derby Paperweight - Mythical Unicorn L/E

Modelled by Mark Delf and Decoration Design by June Branscombe. Issued in a Limited Edition of 1750 from Govier's, Sidmouth. It is the second paperweight in their Mythical Beasts series and is paired with Pegasus. Although very similar at first glance to Govier's previous Unicorn, it is modelled in the opposite hand and whereas the previous one was the first Royal Crown Derby paperweight to combine metal with porcelain, the Mythical Unicorn is the first Royal Crown Derby paperweight to have a hallmarked silver gilt horn.
