The cups and saucers are from the first edition of the pattern (1962 - 1973), the pot, creamer and the sugar bowl bear the second edition edition back stamp (1973 - 1993) and all pieces are Made in England, not in China or Taiwan as the newer pieces. The rims of this pattern are surrounded in blooming sprays of colorful English roses with hand-applied bands of 22-karat gold. This classic dinnerware pattern is practically synonymous with the name Royal Albert and a long-standing testament to timeless style and elegant craftsmanship. This pattern is decorated with the Old Country Roses signature motif of burgundy, pink and yellow roses, accented with lustrous gold banding. 8 (eight) Coffee/Tea cups - 3 1/2" at the rim and 2 3/4" high.
8 (eight) Saucers 5 1/2 diameter. 8 1/2" from the spot to the handle and 10 3/4" tall to the tip of the lid. 1 (one) Lidded Sugar Bowl. 5 3/4" from handle to the handle and 4 1/2" tall. 4 tall to the tip of the spout.
