Enjoy a hot cup of tea with this classic bone china teacup and saucer.
This elegant teacup and saucer is by Royal Albert Bone China of England. It is called Old Country Roses. It was so very popular that it was reissued again in later years. The newer version has a copyright date on it. This was one of the original issues which was made between 1962 and 1973.
The design was a result of years of work by Harold Holdcroft who said, " We decided to incorporate all the ingredients we knew would be acceptable, richness of colour, softness of colour, good quality and a good value look. All these qualities are incorporated in the pattern. It has lush deep red roses, warmth from the tea roses, delicacy from the bluish pink and an overall softening off of the pattern by using a shade of soft warm green. The rich gold stipple trim gives the sprays continuity and the china good value for money."
Royal Albert Bone China of England crafted this charming rose teacup and saucer. 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.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.5" in diameter. The cup is 3.5" from rim to rim and is 3.25" high including the handle.
