Another of the Traditional British Songs Series by Royal Albert Bone China is this "John Peel" Teacup and Saucer. A famous English huntsman, John Peel was a British Master of Foxhounds in the early 1800's. He was also known for his excellent hospitality. The song, ""D'Ye Ken John Peel?"" was written by his friend, John Graves, during the 1800s. The English huntsmen and their fox hounds in pursuit of their quarry are depicted on this scenic cup and saucer set. In realistic shades of grays, browns, and green, the scene is highlighted with the red of the riders’ coats. Depicted on the Countess-shaped teacup and saucer, the central scene is ringed by sprays of wild roses in pink with greenery. The back of the teacup and the inside rim are also decorated with the wild rose 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;, 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, "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 “John Peel” in dark pink.

There are two gray, vertical lines, each about 1-inch long, on the cup in front of the horseman, and two more shorter, fainter lines behind the horseman. These are under the glaze, and appear to have been done in the transfer process. Other than minor wear on the gold rim consistent with use, there are no other condition issues.
