Tea Time 5 - Royal Albert Blossom Time Series Hawthorn

August 11, 2012
I guess of all the English bone china tea cup manufacturers, I am most familiar with Royal Albert. My most collected flower, the rose.

But today I am sharing a beautiful cup and saucer by Royal Albert called Hawthorn in the Blossom Time Series.
Dainty fluting on the cup and saucer, small pink and white blossoms and yellow edging.

A small area of the pattern inside the cup.

The Royal Albert mark.

A very special tea cup in my collection!

  6. Such a beautiful teacup! I have seen lots of Royal Albert teacups posted and love them, I don't own one but will keep an eye open for one to join my collection.

  7. My favorite, like you, is the love of anything "roses". But I just love, love, love the pattern on this tea cup! How dainty and how beautiful! Can I have? Smile! Seriously, where does one obtain such a beauty?

    I just found your site and I love it!

  8. I don't know how else to contact you ~ hope you don't mind me going through the "comments" to do so. I tell you the truth that my mouth was watering looking at all the beautiful photos of your home. BUT when I was looking at the dining room [?] there is a floor fan that my jaw dropped at the site of!!! Is that original or did you make the base and stand? I would love this! I showed my husband and he showed tremendous interest. Could you share with us?

    Thank you so much, Dar

  9. It's a Deco-breeze fan. I bought it at the furniture store I work at but they are online also.

  15. Hi Carlene,
    Your Hawthorn teacup is very pretty! I love the shape of it as well as the blossoms and yellow edging. Thank you for sharing it with us and joining me for tea today. Have a wonderful week.


  16. Hi Carlene, I have to tell you I started talking to my computer when I saw your cup. It is stunning. Wow! I have never seen that cup before. I am going to go look for it on Ebay and then repent for coveting! Have a great day! Blessings, Martha
