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.
This series includes the black cup shown, as well as blue, hot pink, teal, yellow, green, forest green, purple and red.
This teacup has a lovely gold cascade overlay that is quite striking on the black and white.
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.Terri and Martha at their beautiful blogs for lots more Teacup Tuesday posts.
