I have been following these wonderful memes for quite sometimes. I really wish to join them as I too have the passion for teacups. But time is always not with me. Today, for the very first time I am participating in their teacups memes which they have been hosting all this while.
Actually, I dont have many in my collection as compared to those avid collectors and I dont know much of their history. I collect them because I love the design and of course because I am a 'dishaholic'. Most of my collection are just the porcelain made in China. I dont have many fine bone china. But who cares !!! Having to be in the group who has the same interest and passion for the same thing makes my life more colourful.
As for today, I am sharing part of my trios collection from Royal Albert as shown below.
The Bone china Stamp is from 1941 to 1998
Description: Gold trim, large pink roses
Flower of the Month Series 1970
Lady Carlyle is a classic example of the romantic floral tradition of Royal Albert. This intricate dinnerware pattern features a deep pink border complemented by a highly stylized floral design integrating posies, roses, bluebells, and forget-me-not's. Elaborate gold scrolls recall the curvaceous and extravagant rococo styles of the 18th century.
Cup Shape: Avon
Introduced: 1969 to 2001
Description: WHITE & PINK ROSES, FLORAL
Cup Shape: Montrose
