About the Designer
Royal Albert is completely 'passionate about florals'. Royal Albert has been dedicated to English grace, elegance, and romance since Victorian times. The story of Royal Albert stretches back over one hundred years to a small pottery business established by Thomas Wild, in Longton - one of the six towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent, "The Potteries". Established in 1896, Royal Albert is inspired by everything English- the country garden and England's national flower, the rose. Quintessentially English, Royal Albert Gifts, Fine China & Tableware are both traditional and avant-garde. One of the most famous Royal Albert patterns is Old Country Roses. Launched in 1962, Old Country Roses was based on an older Royal Albert Pattern called Kings Ransom and continues to be one of the best selling fine bone china patterns in the world - selling more than 150 million pieces since its introduction.

This is one of the most beautiful tea sets I have ever seen! This set comes with the teapot, sugar bowl and creamer. The teapot is much larger than I thought it would be, it holds probably close to 40oz. The sugar bowl holds probably about 2 cups of sugar. I'm not sure about the creamer as in the US we generally don't use cream in our tea. The set is pretty study and I recommend hand washing. This set is really great for entertaining or even just to use for yourself. I'm working on getting all the pieces for this pattern. Oh and price was great as this set generally runs close to $200!

I ordered this as a part of a set to go with some rose chintz teacups I recently purchased. It sits proudly on my shelf and I simply enjoy it's graceful lines, though I haven't used it yet. Even though the Royal Albert line seems high, Wayfair couldn't be beat on it's prices and it's something to pass down to your children and friends. I only wish there were dessert plates to go with the set. There's alot worse things to spend your money on, so just let go and enjoy!
