Royal Albert, but not as we know it – ca 1930

When you say Royal Albert, you probably mean the famous Old Country Roses tea sets from the 1960s, with dreamy red roses. This is a Royal Albert tea set quartet from between 1927 and 1935 that is quite different. Heavily gilded and jewelled with emerald green enamel flower dots, and of course its veryΒ endearing shape, it is a gorgeous set. You can find the listing here in my Vintage shop.
