in its seventh decade of success, Lady Carlyle is a classic example of Royal
Albert's romantic, floral tradition. Its intricate design features a deep
pink hued border, decorated with highly stylised flowers and foliage inspired
by the rich textures and style of brocaded fabric. The lavish borders are
inset with fresh posies of English country garden flowers, including roses,
bluebells, and forget-me-nots. What's more, the floral panels and borders
are highlighted by elaborate gold scrolls which recall the curvaceous and
extravagant rococo styles of the 18th century.
