Royal Albert was founded in 1894 by Thomas Clark Wild and is well known for its fine quality bone china.  The Royal Albert Regal series was introduced in 1970.

Royal Albert china is now a part of WWRD (Waterford, Wedgwood & Royal Doulton).  There is a wonderful 100 Years of Royal Albert 10- piece teacup and saucer set here.

What a stunning cup! It's not easy to find a color combination like this with such elegant detail. Can't we all just picture ourselves wearing a little Jackie O black dress with pearls and sipping tea out of this classy cup! What style! :)

Thanks for sharing,

What a beautiful teacup! And I am very happy to have the name of the "cascade gold overlay," since I've often seen pieces with that design, just not as formal looking as on this teacup.
