Brand: Royal Albert
Details: Designed originally in 1962 by Harold Holdcroft, Royal Albert's Old Country Roses has become one of the most popular china patterns in the company's century-long history. The sumptuous design is enhanced by the sophisticated shape, graceful floral ornamentation, rich feminine colors, and a style and elegance that are uniquely English. This matching 3-piece tea set from Royal Albert beautifully complements the entire line of Old Country Roses tableware pieces. The classically shaped 6-cup teapot, 10-ounce sugar bowl, and 8-ounce creamer, each are regally edged with a hand-trimmed border of 22-carat gold. With matching rounded bowls and ornately fashioned handles and spouts, each piece in the set also stands upon a small footed base. The crisp whiteness of the bone china gracefully showcases the decorative pink and golden yellow country roses as they cascade down the side of each vessel. Set on a bed of greenery, the delicate flowers resemble those growing in a classic English garden. The 6-cup teapot stands 8 inches high and measures 10-1/2 inches from handle to spout, the 10-ounce sugar bowl stands 4-1/2 inches high and measures 5-1/2 inches from handle to handle, and the 8-ounce creamer stands 4-1/2 inches high and measures 4-3/4 inches from handle to spout. While the set is dishwasher-safe, for best results, Royal Albert recommends washing fine china by hand. --Lea Werbel What's in the Box 3-piece tea set.
