Another of the Traditional British Songs Series by Royal Albert Bone China is this "Londonderry Air" Scenic Teacup and Saucer. An enchanting scene of a stone country house in pastoral shades of grays, blues, browns, yellow, and green, is depicted on this Countess-shaped teacup and saucer. A barely discernible couple is off to the right in the scene which, in turn, is ringed by clusters of green shamrocks. The back of the teacup and the inside rim are also decorated with the shamrock 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 just over 5-1/2 inches in diameter.

Issued for the Series during the 1950s to 1960s, it is stamped with a black crown, followed by the words "Royal Albert" in block letters, (the T is missing from Albert,) "Bone China" in script, and "England" in smaller block letters. “Traditional British Songs Series of Six” is stamped in green beneath the word England. There is also a three-pronged gold artist’s mark. The mark is completed with the name of the pattern/song “Londonderry Air” in dark pink.

There is a 1/2-inch, faint, horizontal yellow line under the glaze on the back of the cup. There are also small places where the pattern is missing, or there are tiny stray spots of green, as though from the shamrocks. These are all under the glaze and must have occurred during the manufacture. Other than minor wear on the gold rim consistent with use, there are no other condition issues.
