Royal Albert proudly introduced their Friendship series in the 1950s. It flourished until the 1970s. There were twelve blossoms in the issue. This is Gladiolus and it is on the Lyric shaped teacup and saucer. The bouquets have a delicate air with fresh green leaves. The bone china has a soft fan design in it and both pieces have gentle curves which create a scalloped rim and saucer edge. The edges and the pedestal cup were also give hand applied gilt.
Royal Albert was the upscale division of the Thomas C Wild and Sons company located in St. Mary's Works, Longton, England. They produced lovely bone china beginning in 1917.
