Oh tie a rosy ribbon 'round the old cup of tea...if you still love me...
A dark ivory floral Victorian lace of buttonhole stitching at the edges reveals a noble blue background highlighted with a bright gold trim. Threaded in and out of the lace is a romantic white ribbon of pink, yellow, and blue flowers, neatly tied into the jewel of this pattern, a striking large bow.
Royal Albert sure knows how to tug at the heart.
This gorgeous "Valentine" bone china teacup and saucer set is a Royal Albert Crown China backstamp issue which ceased in 1935. While this set is made of bone china Crown China backstamps did not display "bone china" but instead the registration number, as with this pattern, "837063".
Origin: England; pre-owned; 1927-1935
Dimensions: Cup-2 1/2"H x 3 5/8"W opening
Saucer- 5 1/2"W
Condition: Great/ Excellent. This is a beautiful old set with two small specks beneath the handle and to the rim, from production; for its age we do not consider these a flaw (see the main photo). There are no chips, cracks, stains, crazing or wear. The design is delicate yet sharp and the glaze is well intact.

Teacups are like small pieces of jewelry-they tell a story, they are displayed, shown off with pride, and prized from one generation to another. Like jewelry the time comes when such beauties are not so 'minty" young. And yet these lovely items have lasted so long for a reason.
They are still in their prime. Seasoned with time-honored character.
