The pattern name says it all because it definitely makes a regal statement on this coffee can demitasse mold. It is modestly decorated with rich cranberry bands on the saucer and the cup. Around the cranberry color are plain and decorative gold bands. A wider embossed golden band of laurel leaves decorate the upper rim of the cup and also on the rim of the saucer. These wonderful decorations surrounded by a soft cream background. The cup's inside and the saucer's center are white giving a nice contrast to the color scheme. This would be a very nice display piece!! This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
John Aynsley was very good at forecasting ahead of its time. As soon as he believed that tea drinking got into a habit, he started making tea sets and it made a big hit. In 1861 he moved into Stoke-on-Trent, the best porcelain town in Staffordshire. In the time of John Aynsley who was an owner and a skillful craftsman, Aynsley Company expanded very well by making bone china only. It is said that Queen Victoria liked the designs very much, and so Aynsley was deluged with orders from nobility following royalty. As a result, production went behind. In addition, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II and The Prince of Wales have all chosen Aynsley bone china for their homes.
