Royal Albert made these dishes from 1982 through to Dec 2001. Most of these dishes would be dated  in the 80’s according the to previous owner.   She also said they were rarely used and only brought out for special occasions.   They are in excellent condition with barely a sign of use on the surfaces.

The pattern is a delicate green, white and brown floral and the shape of the cups is called Gainsborough.   Some of the serving pieces are in the ‘Victoria’ shape.

This is a complete set of 58 pieces which includes place settings for 10: dinner plates, luncheon plates, side plates, cups, saucers, salt and pepper,  and several serving dishes.

They are currently for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill St., Almonte ON.

Priced at $450 for the set.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!!

Dishes are from Royal Albert Crown China made in England in the Greenwood Tree pattern. The back stamp on these dishes dates them from 1927 to 1935.    Beautiful condition and hardly any wear on the surfaces.  Soft colours and very delicate looking.  There are 4 luncheon size plates and a cream and sugar.

A little before mid century, but I do like these pretty dishes and couldn’t resist them.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!

 

Royal Albert China Dishes, Brigadoon Pattern or Thistle

This is one complete 5 piece place setting of Royal Albert Bone China in the Brigadoon pattern, also known as Thistle.  Place setting consists of one dinner plate, one salad plate, one luncheon plate, one cup and one saucer. Soft pastel blue and purple thistles with moss green leaves and gold edged rims.  The pattern was available for a long time and was finally retired in the early 2000’s.  A place setting as above was priced at $155.00 back then.

Bone china sets are not as desirable today as they used to be.  Those of us baby boomers who were married in the 70’s and 80’s typically registered for a fine bone china pattern such as this one made by Royal Albert in England.  Many of us never used them except on very special occasions so they can be found in excellent condition today.  The brides today are much more practical, opting for good quality everyday dishes for wedding gifts rather than the delicate china of old.   Most older bone china sets can be bought for a fraction of what they cost new.

There are 4 place settings currently available.  Each place setting will be priced at $50 and will be availabe at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.
