Royal Albert Tourmaline


This weeks cup and saucer is Royal Albert bone china from England in the Tourmaline pattern.


This pretty pink and black rose pattern with lots of gold is from the Summer Bounty series.  The six piece series includes Amethyst, Jade, Pearl, Ruby, Sapphire and Tourmaline.

Each cup pattern comes in both the Gainsborough or Avon shape.  I prefer the Avon shape above.


The Summer Bounty series was produced 1960s - 1970s. 


Please visit Terri and Martha at their lovely blogs for more Teacup Tuesday.
