Enjoy a hot cup of tea with this pretty floral bone china teacup and saucer from the Royal Albert Bone China company called Our Emblems Dear. They have honored each of the Canadian provinces with furling ribbons and labeled the provincial flowers with Nova Scotia, Ontario, Alberta, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Quebec. This pattern was issued in 1980 to 1981. Originally the design was issued and called Emblems in 1979. It was discontinued and then brought back under the newer name. The only difference appears to be on the flag on the inside of the cup. This has a flag with a golden pole and gold trim. The other design had a flag with green leaves. Both patterns are upon the Gainsborough shaped teacup and saucer.

There is charming custom of bringing a teacup to the home of a friend. It then becomes a Friendship Cup where it is then used and treasured for years to come.
