100 Years of Royal Albert
To Celebrate Royal Albert’s 100th anniversary a collection of pieces has been produced to commemorate each decade. Styles and tastes have changed considerably over the century and this is reflected in the decoration. The most striking difference is colour. From sombre blues and blacks to the more vibrant colours of oranges and lilacs associated with 1960s and 70s. The collection is divided into two main categories, Royal Albert 100 Years Tea Sets
and Royal Albert 100 Years Mugs
. Each decade from 1900 to 1990 inclusive is represented by a set of teacups, saucer and plate or Mug decorated from patterns of the period. Starting with 1900 Regency Blue, the main decoration is regal blue with delicate stylised maroon floral themes and delicate gold accents. 1910 Duchess is decorated with yellow and lilac roses and blue blooms accented with 9-carat gold trim. 1920 Spring Meadow which is decorated with a motif of primroses, roses, violets, harebells and forget-me-nots on a subtle cream coloured background, accented with 9-carat gold trim. 1930 Mint Deco Rose decorated with the bold stripe border and central floral motif, with 9-carat gold trim edging. 1940 English Chintz is decorated in a rich tapestry of roses, forget-me-nots and violets on daintily designed fine bone china with gold trim edges and base and a gold handle. 1950 Festival decorated with motifs of typically English flowers such as blue harebells, daffodils and snowdrops, on a pale blue background and framed by rich 9-carat gold trim. 1960 Golden Roses decorated with the pattern's signature rose design, detailed in gold on a stunning pink background. 1970 Poppy decorated with bright coral orange and yellow floral motifs trimmed with lustrous 9-carat gold. 1980 Rose Blush decorated with Pink Roses on a soft pink background.
