Old Country Roses is a versatile pattern and its heart-warming nostalgic rose design is a perfect foil for memorable meals at any time of the day. In addition, the design can be mixed and matched with many others in the Royal Albert portfolio including New Country Roses, which features a delicate rose spray on soft pink and crisp white grounds.
The romance of Old Country Roses is enhanced by the generous rounded shapes of the tableware. The open cup shape is balanced by extravagant 18th century rococo inspired handles and by the subtle fluted rims of saucers and plates, which are outlined with a finely painted band of 22 carat gold. The teapot is also in rococo style, and features a graceful lobed shape with a gently fluted top, curvaceous handle and an elegant stylized flower finial to the knob on the lid.
