Description

Here is a gorgeous cup and saucer set from Royal Albert from the 40's/50's.

It is a beautiful shape, I think this is referred to as the corset shape. It is elegant in every way: from the graceful shaping to the embossing, the gold handpainted leaves, the slight scallop design, and the aristocratic handle.
The design is featured both inside and outside on this cup, as well as the saucer.

It is in excellent condition: no cracks, chips or crazing.

Proper tea sipping is not for the wimps.
Anyone who thinks tea can be drunk from a mug is an unfortunate, and from styrofoam, a barbarian.
Tea drinking is more than the slurp from a cup. It is a vision. It is a ritual, it is the essence of civilization.
People used to understand that, and fortunately the tide is turning to a new movement for proper tea drinking.
In fact, collecting beautiful tea cups is now a hot trend. In fact, it might even be called a movement.

What goes around, comes around
