Description

Vintage Tea Cup and Saucer Trio, Hand Painted Royal Albert Teacup and Saucer and Cake Plate with Pink Roses And Rich Gold. A very special trio that would make a lovely gift and is perfect for an afternoon tea party. Dates 1917 - 1925. 3 available at the time of listing.

Description ~

Dating 1917 - 1925 this Royal Albert china trio is simply stunning. The beautiful and elegant pattern of hand painted pink roses, blue flowers and extensively generous amounts of gold decoration is so pretty and unusual that this trio really stands out, whether on the tea table or on display. The bright white colour of the china sets the roses, flowers and gold decoration off beautifully. It is definitely one of the prettiest trios I've listed in my shop yet! The shape of the teacup is very unusual, dainty and exceptionally elegant. The colouring of all the flowers has been hand painted with great skill. This pattern is the height British elegance and would look perfectly at home in a scene in Downton Abbey! This would have been an expensive tea set to buy new and the quality stands out even today. It probably came from an upper class home and may have been part of a tea set given as a wedding gift.

At the time of listing, I have three complete trios available and the price shown is per trio.

Condition ~

In very good vintage condition, this trio has no chips, cracks and crazing. The colours of the flowers are bright and vibrant. Any wear or marks there may be are commensurate with age and reflect the manufacturing process at the time this trio was made and the tea party heritage of this beautiful teacup.

Packaging and Shipping ~

I have used all the photo slots to show the best features of this trio, but it will arrive boxed and gift wrapped in beautiful vintage style brown paper and ribbon. Please see my other listings for examples of my packaging.

**FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING! Just select the Christmas Gift Wrapping option in the shipping drop down menu at the checkout.**

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**

Returns and exchange details

If any vintage china or item purchased from fails to meet your complete approval please contact me WITHIN 1 CALENDAR DAY of receiving it and I will do my best to help and find an outcome you are happy with. You are entitled to return an item within 14 days of receipt. It should be returned in the exact same condition as you received it and you should contact me via Etsy or email to inform me that you intend to return it, before shipping. Return postage costs are at the buyer's expense and original postage costs paid at point of purchase will not be refunded (unless you are a buyer residing in the EU).

If any item arrives damaged please contact me within 24 hours. I WILL REQUIRE you to email a photo of the damage and the original packaging. I will then look at either providing an exact replacement (though this isn't always possible), a proposed alternative or a refund. I will deal with all issues and refunds promptly.

If the buyer has entered an incorrect delivery address, The Afternoon Tea Set is NOT LIABLE for the costs of return shipping and will not provide a refund. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure they have entered the correct delivery address at the point of ordering. There are no refunds permitted when the buyer has entered an incorrect delivery address.

If your item has a Royal Mail delivery reference number or tracking number, which when entered into the Royal Mail 'track and trace' function on their website (royalmail.com) shows the item was delivered or delivery was attempted, or the item is being held by a sorting/post office, then it is classed as delivered and is no longer eligible for a refund due to non-delivery or being lost in the mail. It is always recommended you check with neighbours if your parcel is showing up as 'delivered' and consider whether there are any safe places on your property that the postal service could have left it. You should then contact your local postal service/or sorting office to claim your parcel if it has not been left in a safe place or with a neighbour. The Afternoon Tea Set will inform customers if their order will require a signature upon delivery.

As items are vintage, there may be some wear and tear commensurate to age - this is not a suitable reason for requesting a refund. I always state any minor issues or areas of wear. Items listed are not in newly manufactures pristine condition and never intended to be, due to The Afternoon Tea Set being a retailer of vintage items.

The Afternoon Tea Set retains the right to cancel any sale. In the case of a sale cancellation, the buyer will swiftly receive a full refund, including postage.

CHRISTMAS ROYAL MAIL LATEST POSTING DEADLINES 2018: International: Japan, Asia & Far East 7th Dec. Caribbean, Central & South America 8th Dec. Australia & New Zealand 10th Dec. USA, Canada & Italy 14th Dec. Finland & Sweden 15th Dec. Germany, Iceland, Norway, Netherlands, Spain 17th Dec. France, Ireland & Belgium 18th Dec. UK: 2nd Class 18th Dec. 1st Class 20th Dec. Please ask for deadlines for any further countries.

Orders (except of sale items - see third paragraph below) will be shipped within 1 to 3 working days of payment being received. (Working days here in the UK are classed as Monday to Friday and exclude weekends, bank holidays and public holidays).

I never make a profit from postage and packing charges. I only charge what is necessary to cover costs, such as packing materials and travel costs to the post office, which is some distance away, as I live in a rural English village with no post office of its own.

**Items included in a sale and showing a discounted price on their listing** I reserve the right to extend the 'dispatch within 1-3 working days' policy on sale items during busy sales periods, though this is a rarity. If your item is likely to be dispatched beyond the 1-3 working days period, I will keep you informed of progress and work to dispatch it as soon as possible. All purchases are packed and shipped in the order they are received.

I also reserve the right to extend the 'dispatch within 1-3 working days' policy on items during exceptionally busy periods, though this is a rarity. I will always post a shop announcement and note on my shipping policy informing shoppers when the dispatch period has been temporarily extended, so that potential buyers can be aware before ordering. If your item is likely to be dispatched beyond the 1-3 working days period, I will keep you informed of progress and work to dispatch it as soon as possible. All purchases are packed and shipped in the order they are received.

I should be notified of any in transit breakages or damage within 24 hours of you, or your chosen recipient, signing for it from the courier or receiving it from the post man. I WILL REQUIRE you to email a photo of any damaged or broken items and their original packaging, before I am able to discuss with you a refund or replacement as appropriate.

I will contact you to let you know when your order has been dispatched.

Estimated delivery times:
UK 1st class ~ 1 - 2 days
UK 2nd class ~ 2 - 5 days
Europe & Russia ~ 1 week or possibly up to 2
USA & Canada ~ 1 to 2 weeks
Australia and New Zealand ~ 1 to 2 weeks, longer to remote addresses
Everywhere else 1 to 3 weeks, depending on remoteness of destination.
(Please note these are estimates).

In the event of a poor postal service in a destination country, The Afternoon Tea Set retains the right to cancel an order to any particular country. The customer will receive a swift and full refund (including postage costs) when such a situation arises. However, the necessity to cancel an order is rare.

**INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (i.e. outside the UK): I use Royal Mail Standard International airmail for all orders, unless stated otherwise on an item's listing. THIS MEANS THAT THEY ARE *NOT* TRACKED. I use this as the default in order to keep shipping costs as low as possible. However, if you require any other type of postage, e.g. tracked and/or signed for, priority shipping etc. I am happy to provide a quote - please message me for details BEFORE placing your order. All orders OVER £20, or equivalent value in the buyer's currency, WILL ONLY BE SENT TRACKED/SIGNED FOR, whether they consist of a single item, or a multiple order where the combined total value of the items ordered exceeds £20. I am not able to ask the Royal Mail to investigate shipment of parcels until 25 business days AFTER the 7th business day delivery aim has passed, in accordance with their terms. Therefore, it is not possible for me to class an order as undelivered until after this time frame set by Royal Mail has passed. However, please rest assured that non-deliveries are extremely rare, so please be patient, especially at busy holiday times. I will always do my best to help if you suspect your parcel could be late.

Please note that any parcel sent outside of the EU will have a customs label listing the item and price. This is a legal requirement.

**UK ORDERS: orders will be sent using Royal Mail standard second class, unless otherwise specifically stated on the shipping information against an individual item. You can upgrade to first class shipping at the checkout, if the option is available for an item. If you would like recorded, tracked or next day/guaranteed delivery, please contact me BEFORE ordering. All orders of OVER £20 WILL ONLY BE SENT TRACKED/SIGNED FOR, whether they consist of a single item, or a multiple order where the combined total value of the items ordered exceeds £20. I am unable to ask the Royal Mail to investigate shipment of parcels until 15 business days AFTER the 3rd business day delivery aim has passed, in accordance with their terms. Therefore, it is not possible for me to class an order as undelivered until after this time frame set by Royal Mail has passed. However, please rest assured that non-deliveries are extremely rare, so please be patient, especially at busy holiday times. I will always do my best to help if you suspect your parcel could be late.

PLEASE NOTE FOR MULTIPLE/COMBINED ORDERS WEIGHING MORE THAN 2kg INTERNATIONAL & DOMESTIC: I will inform you ASAP if your order totals more than 2kg (normally 3 vintage china listings or more) and combined shipping may not be possible. For large multiple orders I reserve the right to ship orders in more than one parcel, for safe packaging and cost effective purposes. Rest assured that if this is done, it is due to it being the most cost effective and safe way to get your items to you - no one wants to receive broken goods. I will inform you if your order is to be shipped in more than one parcel. If you would like a shipping quote for a multiple order of more than one item please just ask BEFORE ordering.

FAQs

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.
**Please see my shipping policies for full details.**

Items priced at over £20, or equivalent value in the customer's currency, will only be sent 'tracked and/or signed for' to addresses outside of the U.K, (depending on availability in the destination country), or 'signed for' to UK addresses. Where this is the case, it will be stated in the item's description, under the 'Packaging and Shipping' section.

Orders of multiple items that total more than £20 in value (or equivalent amount in the customer's currency) will also only be sent 'tracked and/or signed for' internationally, or 'signed for' to UK addresses.
