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.

All items are previously owned or vintage estate pieces. They are described as found. Because they come from previous owners, they may have light scratches or very light wear. I will always describe any obvious flaws or any type of noticeable wear, so you are well informed before buying. I take many pictures and I welcome you to ask as many questions as you like. Parcels are packed with foam, peanuts and bubble wrap for safe travel at no extra cost to you. The peanuts are biodegradable, and I ask that you please try to recycle my packaging if possible. Together we can do our part in protecting our environment. Shipping costs are kept down without compromising the safety of the items. Combined shipping is always considered when making multiple purchases.
