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.
Fine English Bone China is no longer manufactured in England. The only opportunity to collect English Bone China is through the secondary market. When looking for made in England Bone China, remember to read the mark and make sure it says “England”, or “Made in England”.
This piece is an excellent example of truly fine quality and craftsmanship.
