Vintage Royal Albert Crown China Rose Marie Teacup Trio and Cake Plate. Pretty Purple and Pink Roses, Perfect For An Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

**Please note: I now have only one of these tea sets remaining available, as one has already sold**

Dating to 1927 - 1935, this Royal Albert Crown China trio and matching 4th cake/dessert plate, by top one of the English manufacturers, is simply stunning. The hand painted roses and delicate pattern is so elegant and luxurious, that it catches your eye from across the room. It is just the prettiest and set to display and admire or serve tea and dainty cakes from! The rich pattern and beautifully hand painted roses make this a very English tea party set. The dainty lilacs, pinks and blues are very girly and just perfect as a baby shower or vintage wedding gift. The pattern is the height of British elegance and quality and it would look perfectly at home in a scene in Downton Abbey! This would have been a very expensive tea set to buy new and the quality stands out even today.

Condition ~

I now have just one of these sets available - the price shown is per set. The set consists of a teacup, saucer, smaller cake/tea plate and the next size up (slightly larger) cake/dessert plate. The larger plate is ideal for serving cakes or biscuits from too. In good vintage condition, it is chip and crack free and there is no crazing to the glaze. There is some wear to the gilding in areas around the pieces' rims, especially on the teacup and its handle, which is commensurate with age and use. There is some minor and even fading of the pattern colour in places on the teacup and saucer, but this is commensurate with age and reflects use. The floral pattern inside the teacup has some fading and this can be seen in photo 7 - it is commensurate with age and use. There are a few tiny flecks in the china, mainly inside the teacup, as seen in photo 6, which occurred at the time of manufacture and are simply part of the manufacturing process of the time. Any further wear or marks are commensurate with age and reflect the tea party heritage of this pretty tea set. Please ask if you would like further photos.

Dimensions ~

Saucer diameter: 5 1/2 inches (14cm)
Tea Plate: 6 7/8 (17.5cm)
Larger Tea Plate: 7 7/8 (20cm)

Packaging and Shipping ~

Your tea set will arrive boxed and gift wrapped in beautiful vintage style brown paper and ribbon. Please see my other listings for examples of my packaging.

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to the value of each tea set, they will only be shipping 'tracked and signed' to international addresses, or first class 'signed for' to UK addresses. I do my very best to keep shipping as low as possible, the shipping is higher on these items because a second larger tea plate is included. Safe packing and delivery of your order is my priority**

Please read my shipping policies before ordering. I always combine shipping of multiple items ordered wherever possible and I ALWAYS refund any shipping over charges where they arrive. Please get in touch if you are considering ordering multiple items and would like a shipping quote before ordering.

**If you are resident outside of the UK and nervous about ordering china from abroad please don't be. I take tremendous care to wrap all my items to the highest standard regardless of the distance they travel, near or far, by land or air. Please see my customer reviews, which confirm how well and carefully I package my orders and, of course, if you have any concerns or questions just ask and I will get back to you straight away**

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Please note, it is not possible to reserve items for first time customers, I'm very sorry. I can only reserve an item for a repeat customer, for a strict 24 hour period only.
All orders are gift wrapped in vintage style brown paper and pretty ribbon as standard. There is no extra charge for this. Christmas gift wrapping can also be selected for an order at the checkout. I reuse packaging boxes and filling materials wherever possible, for environmental reasons and to keep costs down, but please rest assured that your order will still look smartly gift wrapped.
