Royal Albert Bone China of England was owned by the Thomas C Wild and Sons Ltd of St Mary's Works in Longton, England. The company dates from 1917.
English bone china was admired for its lightness, translucency and its soft subtle almost pearly white quality. Much approved of by the tea-party hostess of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
This charming set was created in their Gainsborough shape. The pleated border is a pale blue gray.
The price also includes free US shipping, free gift wrapping and free shipping insurance.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.6". The cup is 3" high and 3.6" from rim to rim.
