Pink flowers are all over this lovely Royal Albert fine English bone china teacup and saucer set. With a small amount of blue flowers and bright yellow petals that appear to flutter like small wings, this very feminine set, is accented with a scalloped design and a bright gold trim.
Origin: England; pre-owned
Dimensions: Cup- 2 3/8"H x 3 7/8"W opening
Saucer- 5 1/2"W
Condition: Very Good. Surface use marks are seen to the saucer well.
From manufacturing: Four light paint specs are seen to the cup interior (see photos); faint black paint line and two specs are noted to the cup front base.
Faint, hair-thin lines of pink paint are found on the saucer backside; these lines appear to be some form of fiber hairs that were glazed over during firing. As this set was not marked as "seconds" or discarded by quality control, the presence of these fibers, strangely, seem to add a nostalgic feel regarding the crafter's production environment within the St. Mary's or Edensor Works potteries.
There are no chips, cracks, stains or crazing. Each piece is clean, the design and colors are vivid with no loss, and the gold trim is bright and intact.
