The lovely Lady Alexander Rose pattern of this Bone China Sugar and Creamer may bear the marks of either Bell China or Queen Anne as both were trade names of Shore & Coggins when Thomas C. Wild & Sons was the parent company. A 1-inch wide continuous ring of large rose blossoms in realistic shades of dusty pink to deep burgundy rose encircles the rim of each piece. Each blossom is highlighted with green leaves and a glimpse of a stem, with wispy pale blue foliage as accents. A matching spray of two rose blossoms is on the inside of the sugar bowl. Each foot and scalloped rim is trimmed with gold, and the handle of the creamer is also gold decorated.
The creamer is 2-3/4 inches tall and 2-3/8 inches in diameter, 4-inches across the handle and spout. It stands on a 1-3/4 inch diameter foot. The matching open sugar is 2-inches tall by 3-1/2 inches in diameter on a 2-1/8 inch diameter foot.
Each is marked with a color miniature of the pink rose motif followed by “Fine Bone BELL China, England" in green. The pattern name, “Lady Alexander Rose” is arched above the miniature rose. A pink “H” accompanies the back stamp on the creamer, while the sugar has a line and dot like an exclamation point.
Bell China was an earlier trade name used circa 1936 to 1949.
The creamer has three brown stains on the handle, and another, fainter one inside on the bottom. The continuous ring of roses around the rim shows very slight wear on both pieces. Other than expected shelf wear on the underside of the foot on each, There are no other condition issues.
