About the Collection:
Quintessentially English, Royal Albert China and Collectibles continue a long-standing legacy of quality tableware and ceramics. With a pedigree dating back to 1896, Royal Albert (a division of Royal Doulton) is known by collectors as an exuberant, feminine brand of table and giftware. This collection’s legacy began in a small pottery business located on a string of six towns in England known as the Stoke-on-Trent or “The Potteries” for their distinct wares.
You might recognize the Old Country Roses, a delicate floral print that is among the most popular dinnerware patterns in the world. Combining romance and tradition, the ever popular Old Country Roses bone china is inspired by Victorian-era design. It features the beauty of delicate English tea roses in bold shades of red, pink and yellow, and is encircled by a band of 22k gold. True to its brand heritage, craftsmanship and quality remain paramount within this collection. Be swept away to elegant dinner parties with lovely, classic bone china designs from Royal Albert China and Collectibles.
