A beautiful black Royal Albert American Beauty Tea Cup and Saucer set. Large pink roses, green leaves and white Baby’s Breath fern on glossy black ground. Standard size in Malvern shape cup. Stamped with the Royal Albert Bone China England stamp. Circa 1960 – 1970.
Excellent condition, no cracks, no chips, no crazing, no color fading. Tiny bit of color loss on saucer, see last picture with arrow. All other white spots and circles are just reflection because the paint is very glossy and lots of shine.
Fine English Bone China is no longer manufactured. The only opportunity to collect English Bone China is through the secondary market. When looking for original English Bone China remember to always look at the stamp and see that it says “England” or “Made in England”
Royal Albert’s history began in England in 1896 by Thomas Wild. It was a successful family run business that produced beautiful high quality Fine Bone China over a span of 100 years. Having a close relationship to the Royal Family, the name ‘Royal” was added to “Albert Crown China” in 1904. They were known for their rich and colorful patterns, floral motifs and Rococo shapes. They offered 100’s of styles and designs to compliment any table and their pieces were suited to every class from the modest to the wealthiest. They used roses in many of their patterns to represent England’s national flower. The company was sold to Waterford Wedgwood in 2005 and is no longer made in England.
