Teacup Tuesday – Royal Albert & Wedgwood

This week I’m showing a Royal Albert teacup and a couple of Wedgwood teapots (or teapot and coffee pot).  The Brigadoon pattern with its soft colored thistles is quite pretty and a change from my usual floral cups.

P8161867The teacup has a lovely Montrose shaped bowl on a footed base.

P8161869 The Brigadoon pattern was introduced in 1963 and discontinued in 1991.P8161872  P8161873

P8161875

This piece is an older version of my Wedgwood Edme pattern.

P8161870 P8161871This Wedgwood Queen’s Ware teapot is one of my favorites and I love it and the rest of my Edme tableware.

P8161876

I’d like to add to this set and also see what pieces can be found in the older pattern with the pretty leafy  bands.

Please see  Terri and Martha's blogs – they are the ladies who host Tea Cup Tuesday and also Wanda Lee who hosts Tuesday Tea For Two.

Oh I do love the thistles. Very Scottish. I also really like your all white teapot. It is very simple but extremely elegant looking. Take care.

Oh, the Brigadoon pattern is lovely! I do love the colors....a bit different from the pinks on so many cups.

since Wedgewood bought out Royal Doulton 2 years ago I have had a great deal of trouble getting my shipment. I am so sorry that they decided to eliminate the collectible tea series AND the birthday of the month cups and saucers. They were the best ones available. They will continue the 100 years of Royal Doulton seriesfor which I am glad!

Love seeing the teawares! That coffeepot is such a nice companion to your teapot, and the thistle pattern teacup is just lovely too.

Oh, beautiful!! Its colors are rather unusual, which I think adds to the teacup's beauty.

I LOVE the plain white teapot. Something so beautiful about the simple, clean look of plain white.

Blessings,

Very lovely teapots. The one entitled, 'Brigadoon' reminded me of the beautiful, fun movie starring Gene Kelly.
