Another of the Traditional British Songs Series by Royal Albert Bone China is this "Men of Harlech" Teacup and Saucer. On this Countess-shaped teacup and saucer, the stalwart Harlech Castle of Wales looks down on the valley below in this peaceful scene giving no hint of the battles it has withstood. In realistic shades of greens, grays, blues, and golden yellows, the scene is ringed by groups of large yellow daffodils with life-like greenery. The back of the teacup and the inside rim are also decorated with the daffodil motif. The scalloped rims, as well as the foot and handle of the cup, are all trimmed in gold.
The footed teacup is 3-3/8 inches in diameter, 4-1/4 with the handle, and 2-7/8 inches tall. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
First issued for the Series during the 1950s to 1960s, the back stamp is a black crown, followed by the words "Royal Albert" in block letters, "Bone China" in script, and " "England" in smaller block letters. “Traditional British Songs Series of Six” is stamped in green beneath the word England. The mark is completed with the name of the pattern/song “Men of Harlech” in pink.
There is a fine, straight 5/8-inch utensil mark on the front of the cup just above the left corner of the castle. There are several tiny specks in the design, and also four tiny specks on the saucer that appear to have been done in the manufacturing process. There are no other condition issues.
