Royal Albert Buckingham Series teacup

P7223021

This week I’m showing another Royal Albert teacup.  This cup and saucer is from the Buckingham series that was introduced 1970s-1980s.

These teacups come in pink, blue, gold, turquoise, dark green, green and red.  To me, the blue and gold cups are particularly exquisite.  I’m finding that teacups that come in series with several colors are very appealing, although I’ve never collected a whole series.

This color is actually a little darker than it appears in some of these photos.

The teacup is in the pretty Gainsborough shape.

The intricate gold patterns on these cups are really gorgeous.
